Cycling so far: Emilia, Beghelli and Paris-Tour

GP Emilia
Can I honestly say that procycling didn't need an Abu Dhabi Tour in October? That's what I think and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Money seem the only criterion leading the sport and yes I agree, money are important but the UCI should consider also racing quality, calendar, tradition.

Paris-Tours
The last one is the last also in the UCI list really! GP Emilia and Trofeo Beghelli lost all their importance to a new race in Abu Dhabi! We don't see the new World Champion Sagan in Paris-Tours but in the desert, in extreme weather conditions but who care if money call?

Trofeo Beghelli
I have already switched to cyclocross. Here you have the last road results. 
I'm glad to see that GP Emilia added a Women race.
I'm glad to see Manuel Belletti on Trofeo Beghelli's podium: bravo! that's one of the best guy I know!
