This went quite badly for everyone involved.
On the opposite end of things Kye Forte talked about all things two-wheeled and his love for all of it:
As you will probably be aware these are both oldish stories. For up to date news we could look at how Santander have sponsored the Boris Bikes for next year and so they’ll be painted red.
Not very exciting? No ne neither. This is quite good though.
The Spring Classics kicked off at the weekend giving us all a chance to see what the road pros really have to offer. We’re done with the hot races in the deserts and it gets serious in the spring sunshine and, more usually, rain.
On Saturday it was Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, and it came down to a hard man’s race with a group of Etixx Quick-Step riders in a group with Ian Stannard. Stannard attacked and took a stunning win.
Let’s not forget that this is a rider who broke his back just last year. Here’s the race report form Sky.
Sunday was another classic race, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. This came down to a sprint where Mark Cavendish put together a much needed win as his contract potentially started to look shaky with a lack of big wins. He beat Alexander Kristoff in the first big sprint-off in the lead up to Milan San-Remo.
Let’s hope this is the start of another big year for British cycling stars.
