    Live coverage of the 2017 Flèche Wallonne from around 14:15 CET today - it is just a shame that in the modern era top tour contenders like Chris Froome and Quintana are too busy doing high altitude training or too chicken to come and play - except Valverde #vivaValverde :-)

  • wakeuptomuffThat's why I love Valverde. People want to paint him the pantomime villain but he's out there every day working like a dairy farmer.
  • chirundujason@wakeuptomuff I cound not agree more - cycling fans want to see their heros race - I think they should make some rule changes - so like marathons, you would need to qualify to get into the Grand Tours - so that would force them to ride the oneday classics and monuments instead of doing this silly altitude training.
  • stamandrewMy money's on Valverde for this one 💪🏻
  • wakeuptomuffBetancur's laid off the sadza and is looking good. Covering the attacks well.
  • pl0w_kingVery nice :)
