10 from the Amstel Gold Race. This race may be relatively younger than all of the important Spring Classics, but it is a good, and difficult race. The start list was impressive - with 3 current world champions, Rui Costa (Road), Tony Martin (TT), and Matej Mohoric (U23). This is not including many other talented riders also starting.


I’m sorry, this is just unacceptably adorable. YOUR BABY IS EATING AN ARMWARMER

"You can’t go to battle with scuffed shoes. It’s a funny thought, but in some weird way, it makes perfect sense. Matteo Pelucchi was called in as a late replacement for a sick, Sylvain Chavanel, and he took to his chance with a smile. I love it that Matteo fixed that nasty scuff on the toe of his shoe before starting Roubaix. I like it even more that he had an ‘I heart Roubaix’ sticker on his shoe.”
