Hi,

I went to watch some pro riders go around in circles this evening in Heerlen, NL. Below are a couple of photos, there are more, and a little video, on my Flickr site. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Steve

    Thanks for the post and pics Steve

    VKNL has Andy Schleck as the winner in a leading group, which also contained Pierre Rolland & Wout Poels. Cav won the sprint finish of a chasing group.

    That's enough amateurish translation from Dutch to English from me!

    Quite - that Andy Schleck is a dreamboat!

    I have a few from my "private collection" if you're interested, Tusher?


    Thanks Ron. Yes, when I left Andy was belting around with Johnny Hoogerland in hot pursuit. Cav was back in the pack, having done his stint up front for the punters...

    MANDY?!?

    Mandy Schleck is g-ross. Yuk.

    And, let's face it, he's not exactly ageing well. He'll end up a petulant, prepubescent youth in the body of a middle aged man. Just mind my words in a couple of decades!


    Mark Cavendish, on the other hand, will most certainly be Sir Mark Cavendish by then, residing on the Isle of Man in a mansion, doing a little TV punditry, designing his own bikes, et cetera.

    You've clearly got it bad for the boy, so just for you, here are a couple more:

    To be honest, he looks better on a bike. He's quite little and seems to breathe through his mouth a lot, even when not riding, which tends to make his jaw jut out a little. Maybe it's a habit from before he had his teeth fixed. Don't get me wrong, he's a fantastic rider, and I'm a fan, but he's just not my type. :D

    I think that's his wallet - they get well paid for these rides. :)
