As far as the pro peloton goes, it’s on! I watched the Tour of Flanders today, and it was one of the best races I’ve ever seen.
“Looking back, you get a bit nostalgic, but from a competitive point of view, Flanders was one of the most horrible races to ride but one of the greatest races to win.” – Sean Kelly
I thought for sure Cancellara was going to win. Then I thought for sure Gilbert was going to win. Then I thought Chavanel would win the game of tactics. Then I again thought Cancellara was going to win. Then Nuyens won.
What an amazing race. Paris-Roubaix has a lot to live up to next week.
The weather here is improving, but at an agonizing pace. It’s going to be raining a lot this week, but I have a shot at riding outside at least one day. At least my trainer rides have been getting better as I adapt to more interval workouts. I’m still working in some tempo rides; I need to do longer average rides this season – I want to have the average be right around 2½ hours.
