The new season has started and things are well underway with some riders already racking up wins to get their seasons of on the right foot while others are, with their respective teams, limbering up to the major races of the year that will commence later this month. Notable races such as Milan-San Remo and Gent-Wevelgem will be underway in a few weeks and Paris-Nice is being contested this week. We are now only a few months from the first grand tour and the classics are beginning to sparkle with their usual excitement. On the more controversial side doping cases are as usual being heavily discussed and criticized. I will be uploading detailed reports of this weeks action in the next few days as well as reviewing doping cases and previewing major teams and riders for this year.
