We take a look back at this year’s Spring Classics with a handy list of links to all of our exclusive coverage.
This year’s Spring Classics have produce some of the most exciting early-season racing in recent years. It’s been hard to predict who will come out on top – with no one rider or team in dominant form – but we did our best to select the riders most likely to succeed in our comprehensive race previews.
We then reviewed each race, seeing how our tips performed and talking to the top riders to get their reaction. Plus we put together stunning photo galleries from each event by our top photographers – Luc Claessen and Andy Jones.
We’ll also make no excuse about including the Scheldeprijs in our Classics review – a fine win by Mark Cavendish makes it a Classic in our book.
