It was the start of the Spring Classics and we were afroth with excitement. We had a cat-and-mouse ending for Omloop and a break that made it in KBK. The UAE race got cancelled to go into quarantine (and we still don’t know what’s happening there!). More bad behaviour from Moscon and Oleg is under house arrest (yes, seriously). It’s all here – ALL HERE – on Tweets of the WEEEEEEEK
A brand new award to cover all those moments that left us laughing, enraged or just downright perplexed.
The Race of the Falling Leaves is a bittersweet race, really. Sweet because it’s one of the most beautiful races, with plenty of excitement to accompany its travel-porn shots of Lake Como; bitter because it’s the last Monument of the season, and, for VeloVoices, it’s the last race we cover in the season. Oh, and because George Clooney hasn’t invited us over to his Lake Como villa. But Vincenzo Nibali didn’t care about any of that – he did what he does best. Took the race by the scruff of the neck and finished solo for the win. Julian Alaphilippe descended like a stone for second and Gianni Moscon filled out the podium.
