Friday Open Thread!

It's Friday! Where do the days go? Maybe they fall off the edge of the planet. Or get burned up in sunstorms. Something like that, anyway. Hopefully, all you lovely people have had a fabulous week.

This weekend? We've got the Ronde van Drenthe World Cup. We have Paris-Nice finishing on the Col d'Èze. And, we have a couple days of Italy racing at Tirreno-Adriatico. Note! They have removed the Passo Lanciano from Saturday's stage due to bad weather. Check the @TirrenAdriatico Twitter feed for more deets on the new course. Now that, my friends, is a lot of bike racing right there. More is better, amiright?

Got something to say? Here's the place. Happy Friday and enjoy the bike racey weekend!
