    Spring Classics.

    It's starting this weekend with the
    Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
    and then the
    Omloop het Hageland.

    Then come the prince races. Millan San Remo and the Cobbled classics.

    It will be great this year as I will be able to watch them all live.

    I wonder if Cav will be fit for the sprinter's classics given he got crocked in Abu Dhabi.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Yarp that was weird. Organisers say that the cars auto brake came on as the bikes came up the side of car.... but if you watch it in slow - there are no bikes infront or up before the side doors of the car as it brakes compared to the motorbike that was beside it.

    These auto functions worry me, under normal circumstances a following vehicle shouldn't be so close that it can't stop if the vehicle in front suddenly brakes but in reality and especially in this situation this doesn't happen and you don't expect something to brake well....unexpectedly!

    When I ordered my Skoda it was speced with auto-emergency braking but they took it off the production model because it was proving too sensitive. Even the emergency brake assist is a pain and has activated when I was in full control of the vehicle and caused more of a problem than it solved. I'm of the firm belief that if you need auto-braking, speed sensitive cruise control, lane control and auto parking etc you should not be driving!!

    Well its nearly time for Millan San Remo. This Saturday.

    Whos it going to be then ??????? Some big names already out of the equation due to injury and illness.

    Is Segan going for the win or is Kwiatkowski going to do a double up.
