Rain, Rouleur and Races
The day was spent reading Rouleur magazine, whilst drinking coffee and eating brioche.
The start of the cycling in Belgium kicked off in good style at the weekend. Eurosport didn't cover them for various reasons and they cannot be at every race, but I managed to find a recorded feed and watched them from start to finish. Team Sky made sure they put a strong set of riders at both races and it paid off. Mark Cavendish, love him or hate him, showed his prescence and put Kurne-Brussels-Kurne under his ever expanding belt of wins. Juan Antonio Flecha took 3rd at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, even though I thought he'd win after his 2nd place finish in 2011.
It won't be long till our motorhome is loaded up and we're heading to Dover to spend a week following Gent Wevelgem and the 3 days of De Panne. I cannot wait!
