Tour de Cycling - Wednesday

- Tour of Turkey Stage 5 live video Thursday: 13:45 CET (7:45am U.S. Eastern)

 

50th Grand Prix de Denain Thursday

Thursday will see the running of the 50th Grand Prix de Denain (France).  Edvald Boasson Hagen won last year and he is back to defend.  Past winners include Jean Stablinski (1968), Walter Planckaert (1976), Paul Sherwen (1983), Frederic Moncassin (1990, 1991), Jan Kirsipuu (1998, 2001), Thor Hushovd (2004), Jimmy Casper (2005, 2006).

The GP de Denain is the next leg of the Coupe de France following yesterday's Paris-Camembert, won by Casper (Besson-Sojasun).  Casper is overall Cup leader with 85 points, Romain Feillu is in second place with 45 points.  Casper hopes to get his third career victory in Denain (worth 50 points) which would give him a pretty commanding lead in the French Cup.  He already has 4 victories this season, his surprising Besson-Sojasun team, led by manager Stephane Heulot, has 10 victories overall.  There is no live TV coverage for this race.

- The Sportwereld ticker doesn't sit well with full page Google or Babelfish translation.  But you can copy/paste text from the ticker into the Translate text box of Google's Language Tools page.  Select Dutch as your source text, select the language you want it translated to and click the Translate button.

- Sportwereld ticker changed their start time, so looks like they're at least somewhat active from 13:00 CET, 5 minutes ago.

- Coming up after today's races: Tour de Cycling - Wednesday

- Looks like the earliest live ticker coverage (on CN) won't get underway until 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern).

- Tom Boonen, by raising his arms too early, literally got posterized by Mark Cavendish in this race last year.  In a different manner, Thor Hushovd no doubt got posterized when he overcooked that corner in Paris-Roubaix as Boonen took off. (If you missed it, check out Bernard Papon's photo sequence in yesterday's "Tour de Cycling - Tuesday".)  Cavendish is not back to defend at the GP de l'Escaut as French speakers call it.

- We recommend you open our Twitter feed in a separate window now.  If ever we have a server outage, we will update on Twitter and direct you to a live coverage page on another server.

- L'Equipe photographer Bernard Papon gets the shots

Graham Watson is by far the best-known individual cycling photographer worldwide.  He obviously is world class and arguably the best.  But when French sports daily L'Equipe puts a half dozen or more of its own world class photographers on a bike race, they easily combine to produce the best photographic coverage.  The low resolution and highly compressed images above do not do justice to the superb sequence shot by L'Equipe's Bernard Papon. - Thor Hushovd, the last man left to challenge Tom Boonen in Sunday's Paris-Roubaix, goes down and Boonen is gone.  -Pete

Paris-Roubaix Live Coverage


Born in Argentina, Juan Antonio Flecha began racing at the age of 7.  And from the start, he was in love with cobblestones. He lived on a cobbled street. Sharing a bedroom with his sister Emilia, Juan Antonio's bed was the one next to the window. Passing cars at night made the noise...that passing cars on cobblestones make. "I could hear the cobblestones even while asleep, even in my dreams."  (info from J.A. Flecha's website)
Copyright © 2009 Pete Geyer/www.cyclingfans.com

There's my pick, or I should say co-pick for tomorrow's Paris-Roubaix: Juan Antonio Flecha.  "Co-pick" because I will continue to pick George Hincapie until he wins it or retires.  I highlighted Hincapie last year, now it's Flecha's turn.

Anyone who has been dreaming of cobblestones since the age of 7 needs to win this race.  Like Hincapie, Flecha is made for Paris-Roubaix.  They have both finished on the second step of the Paris-Roubaix podium.  In 2005, they were on the podium together, Hincapie second, Flecha third behind winner Tom Boonen.

Juan Antonio Flecha is a classy rider and he is great with fans and the media alike.


Juan Antonio Flecha (Rabobank) answers questions at the 2008 Paris-Roubaix teams presentation in Compiegne.
Copyright © 2009 Pete Geyer/www.cyclingfans.com

Imagine a successful two-man breakaway on Sunday, Flecha and Hincapie.  Two men who have dreamed of this for most of their lives.  Two men who have been just one step from raising a cobblestone above their heads in triumph.  Two men who have already finished on the podium together.  I know who my top pick would be but I could be happy with either one.  -Pete Geyer
