There's zillions of countries taking part in Cycling! You can see a whole list of them here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycling_at_the_2020_Summer_Olympics

With the road cycling event so close to the end of the Tour de France it will depend who has any legs left.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] We never see mountainbike either.

Cobblestone classics aren't mountainbike, that's just road cycling.

[@421865,Kwek00] i know,,,,i am a bit of cycling addict.Was delighted when Eurosport decided to show all the cyclo cross in the Winter.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] oh, I didn't know they did that on Eurosport too... I watch most of it on the Belgian National Broadcasting network. But part of it is in commercial hands and I'm not going to pay extra. I also don't watch all the races, but when it's on I can have some fun.

I also don't watch all the cycling on the road. I did watch the end of the Tour the France this week but that's about it. And I watch Paris Roubaix, I even record it sometimes... it's just that good.

Cobblestone classics are:

[b]E3 Harelbeke[/b]



[b]Gent–Wevelgem [/b]



[b]Tour of Flanders[/b]



[b]Paris–Roubaix [/b]

Kwek00 · 36-40, M
Mountainbike and cyclo-cross are going are both going to go to the Netherlands.

The road part... well, most of the favourites just finished the Tour. And the circuit in Japan has some good climbs. I think that competition really open.

Might be worth putting this on the threads

The Tokyo Olympics - due to begin on Friday - could be cancelled at the last minute because of rising coronavirus cases, the Games' chief has admitted.
Toshiro Muto said discussions are continuing because it is impossible to foresee what may happen with COVID-19 infections.
With cases rising in the Japanese capital and a state of emergency declared, it has already been decided to hold the various competitions in empty venues in and around the city.
There have been 67 cases among those accredited to the Games since the start of the month, Reuters reported.
"We can't predict what will happen with the number of coronavirus cases," Mr Muto, who heads the organising committee, said during a news conference.
LookingForTheSummer · 31-35, M
[@1027452,adorbz] Yes! Or we'll riot! 😠
PhpPhoenix · 31-35, M
[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] oh dear... What's weird though is that the spread is fairly predictable with proper testing and you'd think Japan is on top of that. (Of course you can't predict every case, but it's not that hard to predict whether measures or lack thereof are going to lead to thousands of new cases or only tens.) So I don't understand why Japan of all countries finds it "impossible to foresee what is going to happen with infections". 🤔
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M

[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] Time Trials is more driving against yourself... it's a bit like masturbating. But it's still spectaculair to see them driving against high tempo.

Just give me Paris Roubaix in autumn... It's been 2 years, Paris-Roubaix beats any cycling game that I know.

[@421865,Kwek00] Yeah 😀.We may get a Welsh medal in the TT.

Incredible women’s road race....can the Austrian be caught in the last three km?
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M
Anna Keisenhofer.....led from KM 0 and won the gold.
One of the greatest rides ever........Incredible.First Austrian winner in cycling since 1896.No Austria in my medal list!
The Dutch blew it...but good to see Van Vleuten get a silver after the horror of
Rio.Good to see Longo Borghini get the bronze.
Best sport you’ll see all day.

[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] i watched the end of this one too 🥺 i was happy for her. There were polish and israeli riders too in 2nd and 3rd for a while but then they just evaporated and i didn't notice them go behind everyone. I blame aliens 👀

Van Der Poel...
That's some real drama right there 😱
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M
[@421865,Kwek00] yeah...spectacular crash.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] Apperently, he believed there was a ramp there. So he pushed down... but there was no ramp, so he should have pulled up.
PhpPhoenix · 31-35, M
[@421865,Kwek00] damn, that's sad, but it's also hard not to giggle at least a little about the irony.

[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] Dendermonde last season:

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BXsAay9e7A]

But for the men, they cut this part out of the trajectory because it was too dangerous. But all the women had to do it. And then the trajectory for the males was so easy that they could stay on their bike all the time. ... But I understand that this was a bit over the top, it's sad for some women, because they lost their game in this one spot that just sucked you and your bike in like quicksand. [i](yes you can see males going down at the end of the youtube, BUT this was the exception, not the rule)[/i]

[@421865,Kwek00] the muddier the better.i watched a lot of cyclo cross last year.
I like the race that takes in the beach!
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
[@356742,Sirfurryanimal] Probably Ostend? But if the sand is hard, then there is nothing too it. If you want to see Sand, then the circuit in Zonhoven is more spectaculair.

First up, then through the little forrest area, and then down!
