Thread to discuss 2021 professional road cycling season.

UAE Tour was fun to watch, with sprinters showing off their legs

I somehow haven't had the time to watch races this season. As much as I 'd like

What about you guys?

I can relate, man. My schedule and priorities are somewhat different.
But after watching Cavendish take 4-wins-in-a-week, I'm back in action. It was much fun watching him race in Turkey and grabbing those stage wins. I hope he'll give us a couple of seasons more.

Cavs' appearance is unlikely :/ Sam Bennett is their top guy

yea Cavendish most likely would not stay in the race until the last stage and therefore it does not make sense to have him as a backup sprinter

there are two flat stages in the last week for sprinters and two chances for Bennett including at Champs
