Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?
Monopoly goes Roubaix
A much-needed break from the current events? Cycling fans will be able to enjoy the popular Monopoly game with a cycling twist. The board will feature the Roubaix Velodrome, Poggio di San Remo, and the Koppenberg. Philippe Gilbert and Remco Evenepoel adorn the cover and the whole thing looks quite promising.

“Monopoly Koers Course” is also offering fans the opportunity, via an online poll, to decide which location gets to be the most expensive place on the board. It should be Roubaix, right?
Unfortunately, the game is only available in French and Dutch. But we can look past that. It will be released in November and we need a copy. Hope a dictionary is included.
Need to see this

Maybe the fact that our birthdays are 1 day apart means we are so close. Or it could be that every single thing you do or say feels like a mini-me. From even before you were born, you were full-gas and you haven’t stopped since! But you make me laugh so so much. My little mate, my little shadow, my little training partner. I don’t think it’s going to be just for these 2 years you’ll be obsessed with bikes. Happy 2nd Birthday to our Littlest One, my cheeky little Casper. I love you so much Daddy x
Start with Le Tour, please
