Classics or the Granced Tours....what is your preference?
I have been (and still am) a big fan of the 3 Grand Tours. The drama is almost palpable and you can't beat it for theatre but.....in the past 7 years or so, I have really been looking forward to the spring classics. I have come to enjoy the balls out racing for that one day with the riders leaving nothing for tomorrow. I think that what got me so into the classics was the countless times I had to explain my love of cycling and pro cycling to my non-cycling friends who have only heard of the Tour de France. I guess it may also be that the advent of the classics also means that spring is around the corner and I can get out riding again. I do not like to HTFU and ride in the winter .
