    What's going on with the Europcar guy's glasses?

    32kph average for the last hour, makes them seem almost human.

    Gilbert tries to force a selection, strangely early.

    Maybe he is just testing his legs. Or maybe like with Boonen's move they are trying to whittle it down - specifically to get rid of the Liquigas riders so Sagan has to work for himself. Or maybe because Cancellara is not there.

    I hope Boonen isn't out of Flanders due to that crash.

    Just like I was saying.

    Boonen crashed. Does his DS tell his boys to stop?

    If I was a rider, I would seriously consider pulling out in case I get an injury or cold from the conditions. Flanders on the 31st - doesn't take much to take you out of it.

    Boonen falls and he,s out of the running now. No way back for him. I fancy Sagan now more than ever.

    Boonen back on but out of contention. So it's OPQS for Cav, although he could have used Boonen.

    They hit the Kemmelberg.

    They look like he borrowed them off Jan Janssen.

    Ah no Tommeke hit a drain.

    He looks human going up the Kemmel. Not his year this is it.

    indeed, I ve had a few similar ones myself, although not usually when sober

    Hang on, I thought True Champs entered every race to win?

    Cancellara had a bit of pain in his side, apparently.

    Look DG, Frenchie has barracaded himself into a strong room of there being ice on the roads. The fact that there is nt and that riding over a drain can cause a crash in both -5 and 35deg heat is of supreme indifference..

    If they're not there, they must be miles back.

    COmmentator just named them in the group (I think). Thor there too.
