Cheers Francisco. Was beginning to think I wasn't going to get a win this year,

Congrats Aragonite! :)
I must say the same you did about duels---:)

This proved to be a boring race as the parcours suggested. 6 obvious sprints, a mixed stage raced hard but too easy to make any difference and a TT.
At least they could make the TT shorter so the sprinters could have a real chance to fight for GC

Great performence from EBH, well deserved!
To bad, yesterday's stage not hard enough...

Eddy the Boss! He really wanted this stage and made it, but missed on GC due to correct relegation on the stage earlier.

Thanks LosBrolin, let's just hope the race get opened in that climb at 140 km...
Hope to see Silvan shaking the stage...:)

Was probably designed with Cav in mind as the big draw for the public, but that gamble failed spectacularly. I'll check out Saturday's stage, but apart from that can't be bothered to watch anything but final kilometre from the other stages.

Who ever designed this course should be fired right away.

Ok Aragonite.
Not saying that i'm not enjoying what i'm seeing these days but being the young irish one of the best (among so many great tt's) i was surprised for not having a bit of his ride! :)

Seven sprint finishes and one ITT, is what the parcours suggests, and probably what the organizers will get, imo.

Francisco, the TV channel broadcasting the race is pretty new to cycling. I think they were trying to show the riders who were either out and out favourites, or the riders non cycling fan might of heard of.

Shitty parcours hopefully stage 7 will be raced hard enough to make the race interesting. If it comes to 6 sprints and a TT for GC It will be very disappointing

not very hard climb i'm afraid https://www.strava.com/segments/1338316

Aragonite, Assassin, did you notice that the race transmission did not follow Ryan Mullen?..
Just a coincidence?!

One more question, is 7th stage hard enough to make a small revolution, after today?..

It is.

Much easier to DQ a James Lowsley-Williams than a Greg Van Avermaet.

I stopped holding my breath already. Much easier like this.

UCI decide to take a stand and DQ two riders for riding on the pavement. Be interesting to see if they carry this through on the next televised Belgian race.

Agree. Madness.

Seems that by trying to get the most big names in the race as possible, the organizers have turned what has always been an interesting and competitive race into an eight day borefest.

Would like to know why Phinney got disqualified. Must be because of his glasses.

Confirmed relegation now. Not very impressed by the jury here since they used so long time to do the obvious thing here.

Hehehe ... you couldn't find a nice personality than EBH, but on the bike he transforme in to a beast :D .... winning scull delux :)))

Still no official confirmation on who gets the win, but amateurs if EBH is on the podium and later lose the win, although it is correct in my opinion.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Monday 4.Sep 17:08, 2017
lol. EBH gets on the podium. Seconds later Viviani gets the win :D

No doubt about that ....

Think he will be relegated, crossed the road to close the door for Viviani and then back again, lucky if he gets the win
