    I was thinking about the Tour Series but I don't think that starts up until May. Their website is still a bit bare:

      Viviani wins today's sprint in Dubai, another messy affair on some huge wide highways. Kirby got VERY SHOUTY in excitement when Cav got involved in the finish, though he faded away to about fifth. Groenewegen finished fast so expect he kept the race lead.

          Gaviria wins again at Oro y Paz

          Quick Step once again building a bank of wins early in the season

            "CAV'S BACK KERPOW" screams Kirby as the Manxman wins his first race for almost a year. Right chaotic sprint (again) as everyone ended up giving each other leadouts. Bonuses will have been shared around all over the place so no-one has a great deal to defend on the queen stage to that dam tomorrow.

              Exciting finale coming up in Dubai, Brandon McNulty of Rally is 1:14 clear with about 9k left. Astana keep chucking riders off the front as part of the chase. He's only 0.14 back on Viviani overall, he's picked up a time bonus of a second today, he could steal this race.

                40 seconds with 1.5k to go, Bahrain are chasing furiously and McNulty is starting to tie up as he approaches the foot of the climb to the dam...

                  Oh no, the peloton flew past poor McNulty with about 100m left and Colbrelli won the stage.

                      I recommend the last four km of the penultimate stage of Oro y Paz

                        Bloody hell, that was good.

                        Saw an article earlier today by Philippa York suggesting Sky are subtly and carefully preparing to throw Froome under the bus. With performances like that from Egan Bernal you can see the team's future.

                          The final stage ends with another climb to 2200 meters

                          Quintana, Uran, Henao and Bernal are all within nine seconds on GC.

                            See one or two people came out to watch the race.

                                Vital Concept, which doesn't even have a full website yet, gets its first World Tour win with Bryan Coquard in Oman

                                They look rather like Bora to me

                                  Ugh

                                  Kirby is doing Ruta del Sol

                                  Naessen with a great leadout for Modolo.

                                  EF are having a good start to the season

                                    Or not

                                    Thomas Boudat of Direct Energie steals it on the barrier when Modolo sits up.

                                      Groenewegen wins in the Algarve.

                                      It is going to take a while for me to internalize which of the FDJ riders is the French road race champion and which one is the Dutch road race champion.

I'd say that's the top three sprinters under 25 ahead of this season. I'd instinctively wanted to bracket Sam Bennett in there for some reason but he's actually the same age as Bouhanni and slightly older than Démare.
                                        Magnus Cort Nielsen, who has recently turned 25, says 'hello' with a win in Oman.

                                          I find I get it right if I focus on the shoulders: blue for Les Bleus, red for the Dutch.

                                            Yes, that is the key.

                                              Modolo does not sit up early this time and wins in Herrera.

                                                The new Team WIGGINS kit. Background of the image looks suspiciously similar to Sky Sports' promotional material.

                                                    Nice kit though.

                                                    We're almost into proper cycling season territory now, aren't we? Omloop on Saturday! And, in true Sky fashion, their two-time winner of the race Ian Stannard is not in their provisional squad for it.

                                                    No Sagan, either, who is having an early season break after the TDU before coming back for Strade Bianche.
