Ronde van Vlaanderen/Tour of Flanders – Wrap-up, etc…

“Devolder the Soldier”?

Did I really post that?
Funny how the morning after often brings clarity through hindsight.
Speaking of hindsight, there’s much to be said following yesterday’s race. And while I’d like to say it all myself, I think The Service Course pretty much covered it all–with great links to boot. If you haven’t visited this blog yet, today would be great day to start.
As for myself, James from Ridelugged and I spent the day wandering around Central PA, writing the final cue sheet for the Ramble. While I’m waiting for a more substantial post down the road, we’ve been selected to lead the ride as part of Rapha’s Continental Calling.
More pics and info still to come…

About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.
