Viola!

the Lounge jersey got its proper run on the Paris-Roubaix course today, and as a result got seen by Boonen & Quickstep, and the Rabobank team as they schooled me on how fast you're "supposed" to go on cobbles. :rolleyes:

The sensation just came back to my hands so I could type this up.

Flanders and Gent-Wevelgem are behind us now, looking forward to ringside at Roubaix on Sunday.

I'd love to hang around and chat, but there's beer & waffles with my name on it back in Belgium. Alstublieft!


Cobbly yours~

Did Boonen remember you from the ToC?

He's not wearing gloves? Crazy!!

How long did you ride on the cobbles for? Made any changes to your bike for it (double layer tape etc)?

Lucky bugger.

Oh and, didcha meet estone2 over there? I know he's headed there for the races too but I forgot if he's still there for Roubaix.

Wow.
Trade ya - I'll go over to Belgium to watch racing and you can come to Chicago and read RBR while your office is open on Good Friday. Deal?

Thanks for taking me away, you're my 'Calgon' today.
