Retro Talk: Doug Shapiro wasn’t the first American to ride the Tour; that was Jonathan Boyer; or the second, that was Greg Lemond. But he was the third to do so; and not just in any old role – as a domestique for Tour, Vuelta and Worlds winner, Joop Zoetemelk as part of the mighty Kwantum Hallen team.

Flanders Classics Day 3: Ed and the gang topped off their busy weekend with the cobbles and frites of Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Sunday - typical Flemish fare for a 'race chase'. All the fun of a bike race: Bike spying, mechanic stalking, star spotting and the donkeys, but no glitzy presentation. Proper Flanders.
