Mark Cavendish has ended up at Astana, Peter Sagan has said this will be his last season.

The changes at Ineos look interesting-will this be a "transition" year for them?

Let's hope that we don't see another (final) "clash" between Cavendish and Sagan!

Good win for Tom Pidcock in Strade Bianche on Saturday - hopefully the first of a big classics season for him

Normal service has resumed - Pogacar absolutely dominant in Paris Nice every time the road went upwards, and Roglic doing something similar in Tirreno Adriatico.

Pogacar has currently won 7 races in 12 racing days this season, plus 2 x GC and a points jersey.

Still a long way to go till July; and TJV will have learnt a lot from Paris-Nice.

Good to see Yates as tough and dogged as ever.

Did really like the TTT format they used there, with the clock stopping once the first rider crosses the line.

Was it really a TEAM TT though?!

I thought so, no different than a sprint or climbing train really. Saw a few different strategies used, although a standard would probably form eventually if it becomes a regular thing.

I'm not convinced.

They might as well call it "team-assisted individual time trial"!

Van der Poel wins Milan-San Remo, riding away on the Poggio from Pogacar, van Aert and Ganna (cracking final group that).
