Daily Feedbag: Amstel-Liege-Brasstown Week

It's kind of unbelievable that so little is being said about Liege-Bastogne-Liege, but I'll try to round up what is out there...

  • My Dutch is rusty, but it seems there's a headline at Het Nieuwsblad saying Damiano Cunego is going to make it to the start line in Liege. Now, I'm no European, so maybe I can't appreciate how close together Italy and Belgium really are, but Cunego will be done defending his lead in the Giro del Trentino tomorrow, take a day off to transit up north, then start one of the toughest races on the planet. Then again, those 24-year-old legs recover a lot faster than mine.
  • CyclingNews tags along for a day with Phil Liggett. So does that mean Bob Roll is covering Liege? May I suggest
  • Big day in Georgia tomorrow, as the race starts heading up the Georgian Alpes to Dahlonega. TdGBlog blogs the matter, while the usual suspects run their live text updates. For the stage skinny, check the stage profile, with three monster climbs but a downhill finish to neutralize the splits. This is 191 km's worth of softening up the pack for Saturday's all-or-nothing stage. Tomorrow won't decide anything much on paper, but it will go a long way toward determining who can do anything the next day.
