    Make that three times. That mud following the start is claiming many victims. Edit: Got albert too. Maybe that's not the line guys.

    I think it's fairly safe to say nijs, albert, et. al are glad stybar won't be racing worlds this year

    You don't pour beer on the demi-god of Belgian 'cross. This ain't PDX.
    Start slow, then taper off.

    goes midevil? i hope they did yoga before that stretch
    Good/bad for Nys. unfortunately this is going to encourage asshats to toss Primus and Jupiler on Mr. Roboto.

    Hows about:
    Owen again riding to second behind Van dPoel
    and
    Nikki Harris putting Compton into the fencing

    this was a cracker jack day of racing!!

    Perhaps Nys needs to take a few pointers from J-pow about going "beyond the barracade". Too bad that the incident resulted in a DNF and knocked him so far back in the times series standings.

    If you missed the live stream and dont want to wait a day for it to show up full length on youtube, there is a great 8 minutes of laatste ronde coverage avbailable at; sporza


    17th place today for Johnathan Page, another solid result for him.
