Christmas has come and gone and as another year draws to a close it’s time for one of those year in reflection pieces.
It’s been nearly a six month wait since we left off at Liège-Bastogne-Liège but we’ve finally arrived at the fifth and final of the Monuments of cycling for 2016, the 110th edition of Il Lombardia in Italy.
This Sunday rounds off Ardennes Week and the Spring Classics season with the fourth Monument of cycling for 2016, the 102nd edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
On Sunday riders line up for the race known as the ‘Queen of the Classics’ and ‘L’Enfer de Nord’ (The Hell of the North), the third of cycling’s Monuments for 2016, the 114th edition of Paris-Roubaix.
The Spring classics season is shifting into high gear and attention turns to Belgium this Sunday for the second of the five monuments of cycling, the 100th edition of the ‘cobbled classic’, the Tour of Flanders.
The European Spring Classics season kicks off on Saturday with the first of the ‘Five Monuments’, Milan-San Remo, in Italy.
