Realizing, with the end of yet another spring, that I should probably update/reboot this. Wondering when I’m going to find the time.
Roger DeVlaeminck was tough and all, but really—how much man-ass did he have to deal with?
(it’s a .gif—your playback mileage may vary)
Zack Attack didn’t realize that there’d be a photographer when he cut second period to preview Paris-Roubaix. Can’t wait see what shenanigans he and Screech cook up to keep Belding from suspending them both.
Might as well rename this blog “Eff Yeah Canton Ave”, right? Most of the climbs looks pretty gruesome, but the real fun starts at 2:23 or so.

Footage of Boonen’s puncture on the Arenberg
Best video I’ve seen of the Boonen incident. I’ve got to say, he seems pretty darn calm—a guy who knows there’ll be some regrouping and thinks he can still get back into the race.
It looked like he stood around forever on TV without help, but before the camera moto stops (~1:30) he appears (around :55) to wave off a teammate. I think Steegmans comes past at 2:05.
Also some gratuitous booty shots for the ladies and/or fellas of that persuasion.
Can someone feed Bradley Wiggins!?
Also, why is Geraint Thomas giving Brad a wheel? Geraint surely should have been there for Flecha in the finale instead of handing wheels to Brad who finished way down… Sky high confusion.
I think Wiggo was passing off to Thomas. Certainly after last year’s cobbled Tour stage and this year’s Flanders, that’s how I’d call it.
If you haven’t been following his work all spring, Jered Gruber’s roadside photoset from yesterday is pretty tight.
(and yes, there are shots of actual racing)
