There are tools and skills you need to bring on every ride — what are they? This week's Nerd Alert tackles roadside and trailside repairs. 

But first, Michael Valgren won Amstel Gold in exactly the same way he won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. What's his secret? Is the new Amstel finish better than the old one? It's now a finish that better suits the fast men, including Peter Sagan, because the Cauberg is farther from the finish line. Does that make for better racing? Time for some debate.

Plus, Neal chats with the folks behind USA Crits, a series of the best criteriums in the US.

    Which tool to carry?
    I normally carry only tubes and inflation with my road bike.
    Story
    50 km north of Chiangmai Thailand in back country
    Smashing down a decent at 65kmh
    Suddenly a series of knarly potholes appears
    Bunny hop the first few but drop the rear wheel in the last
    Instant pinch flat and bent rim
    Lucky I had my Allen set
    Had to release brake cable to allow the buckled wheel to turn
    Slow hot ride home but made it.
    Pays to have the right tool
