Is It Just Me, Or Is The No Radios Thing Working?

I 'm not really going to go on and on about the UCI's decision to ban race radios with in the pro peloton. I think that particular line of questioning has been done to death. But...

I got to say that at least from the fairly limited (And comfy.) view point of my arm chair. It seems to be working.

And me likey...

Sebastian Langeveld (Rabobank) celebrates the biggest win of his career
Sebastan Langeveld held the peloton (with some help) for 50k to take the win at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil-DCM) held off the bunch to win.
Thomas De Gendt held off the surging group just at the line (With a lot of help from Jens Voigt.) of the first stage Paris-Nice.

Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) takes home the stage win in Paris Nice
Thomas Voeckler snags the win from another break away.
 So they (the pros) can argue about safety all they want to. But if this is the result of the radio ban. They are going to have a really hard time winning people over to their side of the argument.

That's all for now.

Tomorrow. I wanted to talk about this weekend's race and a really cool thing that's happening along with it. Until then.

Rubber side down,
