Part of the course of the Tour de Wallonie – and I thought the UK's roads were bad. That's a shocking surface at any time but in a group of close-packed riders cycling at 30mph or more, well, the race organisers should go back to the drawing board.
I think they do it on purpose. I went right off the TdF as the course increasingly seemed specifically designed to cause as many crashes as possible. This might look spectacular on camera but personally I don't enjoy seeing all my favourites (or indeed anyone) getting smashed into the tarmac day after day. I prefer the Giro and the Vuelta.
