A landslide has recently hit the Poggio climb leaving over €10m of work needed to get the road repaired.
There are rumours that the organisers of the race might be tapped up by the local council to foot the bill.
Whether the work will be done ahead of the race arriving in March is a moot point.
It might affect Phillippe Gilbert’s chances of completing his 5 monument hand so we will be watching with interest.
Introducing our new race cut 2019 classics jersey.
Featuring the original Fendrien black coloured jersey with the contrast red.
Despite moving across the border into Lincolnshire we have retained the gold and green of the Huntingdonshire flag for this jersey.
The design has a plain front with bold wording to stand out on the back and coloured pockets.
Technical features include tighter fit, bottom of jersey tape to keep it in place and body for stitching.
We love it!
This week we review the OHN and KBK semi classics with an analysis on why Peter Sagan was so hot over the two days.

There isn’t much more to add than that.
Of course bike racing is bike racing and wherever it takes place there is excitement and spectacle, but in the spring time things go up a notch.
From Milan to Oudenaarde to Valkenberg, Roubaix and Liege, this is time of the year for a rebirth and new beginnings in every sense of the word.
I am stuffed full of both sweet and savoury pancakes right now.
But that means we are getting close to Easter, which means we are getting close to the spring classics.
In fact Easter this year will be marked by Gent-Wevelgem, arguably the best of the bunch in 2015. So let’s hope for more of the same.
Now pass the maple syrup.
