Now that all the boring desert racing is out of the way the Classics can begin. I don’t care if the great Eddy Merckx co-owns the Tour of Oman, it’s still a rubbish place for a bike race! There’s been a bit of a lull in any decent road racing since the Tour Down Under in January, but not any more. There’s a packed racing calendar all through March and April.
Of course most will be looking forward to the bigger Spring Classics such as Milan San Remo (which Merckx won seven times!) and Paris-Roubaix, for Bradley Wiggins’ final race in Team Sky colours. I love these one-day races; full of cobbles, climbs and exciting clashes. So now begins two very busy months of racing for World Tour teams!

Tempo Cyclist has made the Spring a little easier. Check out their post with the Spring Classics Schedule. We are looking forward to some epic racing this year. Here in Colorado the snow continues to fall, but spring will be here before we know it.
