“The Sprinters’ Classic” is played out. “The Un-Google-able Race” is the new jam. Lots of posturing, a flurry of attacks over some steep-ish climbs, some not-so-polite racing, and a very suspenseful finish.
And I think that’s a season. This is the third time I’ve done Paris-Tours, so maybe next time around I’ll be up for the Tour of Beijing—or maybe I’ll point out that boxcar-ing events onto an already-too-long season is no way to build new markets. We’ll find out in 2014.
