Ooooof! The VSP generator and operators need more than a week to recover from that race. Tommeke may never recover, that chance will never come again.
We now move into the Netherlands and the first of three Ardennes races. Whomever did well in Paris-Roubaix probably won’t like all the hills in Amstel. Same with the beer but I’ll leave that beery subject alone this year.
PhilGil has been busy fighting drunk drivers (He Badger’d him!) and is now off the start list then again he is back on as of Wednesday. Sure, the police pay attention when the cyclist in the altercation is Philippe Gilbert, ffs. Matt Hayman and Tony Martin are on the list, ouch, no rest there. So rest, recover, don’t spare the malted rehydrating beverage. No Delgados please.
