  • Infernal.

  • Every bit deserved.
    Offensive racing > defensive racing today

  • Quite a lot of booing for Juju, disappointing.

    Think someone threw the contents of a bottle at him on the finish line too?

    Missed fortunately.

  • Are Tom might be wondering why he sat in the group for so long.

    Chapeau Alan Phillips.

    I thought that too. Hopefully just beer not piss.

  • Happy with that result, absolutely deserved

  • Want

  • Voeckler was the French DS

  • He was last year as well, wasn't he? Got his tactics right both times, (and doubted on both occasions when France were attacking a long way out).

  • Does the DS have a role once the racing begins in a race like today's?

  • Belgium playing an absolute blinder

    Didn't age well.

    The sprint for minor placings looked grim.

  • Quite a lot of booing for Juju, disappointing.

    Yeah, that's fucked. I don't mind the "slow down" arms but don't boo athletes (unless they're racists or dopers, then fuck 'em)

  • Someone has to hand the gels out.

  • I think he was just translated as saying JA “didnt respect the plan but it worked”

  • Where are the '22 WCs?

  • No indeed! Though to be fair, they were. Can play it as well as you like but if "the guy" doesn't have the legs then it's for nothing. Happy for the team and rider who animated the race most to have won

  • If the borders are actually open by then.

  • "He didn't stick his tongue out."

  • Being a newly fledged Brussels resident I made the trip out the course and found the best spot I could, bearing in mind I was on my road bike and navigating around Flanders was tricky. I found quite a good corner about 60k from the finish and got a few shots:

  • These are probably the best of what I got. I actually write for a news website and so will do a piece on this tomorrow - if you had to pick 2 of the selection above which would you go for? I'm thinking that 2 and 4 probably best capture the spirit... Also if you can name some of the riders that would be grand.

  • Great helmet with the beers on in that last photo - who was that and what's the story?

  • Beer, cobbles, Belgium. Nizzolo I think.
