No Basques again. Very sad. And no Italians?

What a win by Nibali in Milan-San Remo. Bad looking crash for Cavendish though, not having a great year.

This does tend to happen (witness Contador's last years, Petacchi...).

Maybe Merckx's Tour record is safe eh?

Looks like Terpstra is the strongest today in Flanders, but what a ride by Mads Pedersen. 22 years old...

RIP Michael Goolaerts Paris-Roubaix 2018.

France TV shows the "crash" as riders are cycling single file along a partly cobbled track.  He just veers off into a mud embankment on a downhill slightly curved section of track in the countryside - suggesting he had the heart attack while riding.  The only question I guess will be how soon was medical attention got to him.

Peter Sagan wins the race, but of course news of Goolaerts' death afterwards will forever cast a deep sadness over this race.

In an upset victory for the passage of time, Alejandro Valverde only managed to finish second in the Fleche Wallonne after winning the last four.
