Belgian man to run the Tour of Flanders route:

Holy shit. That's running over 150 miles with many steep, cobbled, and slippery climbs. If it rains, it'll be even harder.

We'll see if Derycke can do it.

A moment of silence for Claudy Criquielion before the start. Criquielion died Wednesday at the age of 58.

Bradley Wiggins to step up Paris-Roubaix preparations with this Saturday's Omloop Het Nieuwsblad:

You may have heard that the Tour de France Champion is going for Paris-Roubaix and the Hour Record this year. Omloop covers much of the same terrain as Flanders and is typically cold and wet:


We'll see how things go for Wiggins against the Flemish Supermen on their home turf. You never know.

Not digging this one in 2011...

I kinda think this one is funny but I guess UCI and many others didn't like this one either...

Either way... Looking forward to the race.

Those posters don't offend me, but whose idea was it to make those promo posters and who approved them?

This cobble talk is getting me hot. These are my favorite races.

How to ride the cobbles:
