The man is just amazing! He just became the first person ever to win 4 TT world championships. On a course that the riders were describing as quite difficult, he averaged over 29 mph for his 58 minute ride.

I just hope him and Contador aren't sharing meals. ;)

Yes it was Amazing, to a guy that only gets 12-13 mph on a ride.

Not only is he fun to watch in the TTs. He is just an animal in stage races where he can get into a break or chase one down. He is an ultimate strongman. These guys are my favourite types of riders, although sprinters are fun too. My fave was/is Jens Voigt. Jens is simply a beast.

And Jens seems like such a genuine great guy, too. I sure am glad that nasty crash in '09 didn't end his career.

How about that E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke win!? He's an animal, a complete cyclist!

Yeah, I never figured him for the hills. But he is steadily improving there.

Versus will probably do a one hour summary of it, but it won't air for a week or so.

TOUR OF FLANDERS SPOILER ALERT

What did you guys think? I think Fabian was the real winner yesterday. Basically he was a one man break-away for the last 62k. I gained even more respect for him when he realized that nobody was going to help him, but instead of giving up or getting frustrated, he just went about the job at hand. I though for sure the Bosberg had destroyed him, but not only did he claw back after that, he worked at the front of the break-away. Inspiring!

Still, though, congratulations to Nuyens! It was a most exciting race, and I hope Paris-Roubaix next weekend is just as good.

Fabian was awesome!!
But, the guy who crosses the white line first, wins....
I my opinion Chavanel was as good as Cancellara.
The race was exciting, the atmosphere was good (been watching in Bruges and a few passages).
