Juan Antonio Flecha wins Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Hot damn. Sky just bagging one right out the box. Read about the race at cyclingnews.com as well. Love this pic too: Gritty.

I picked Flecha as a dark horse, Snake tapped Heinrich Haussler for the win. He was damn close, that Haussler, 2nd by :35 seconds (Edit: I have also seen it listed as :18 seconds). Snake was right, the man is on form.

Flecha. The first Spaniard to take Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Good on ya.

Flecha pointed to the sky before firing off his signature bow-and-arrow victory salute. He later explained that he dedicated his win to the memory of the late Frank Vandenbroucke, the 1999 winner of Het Volk.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. If I could get and hold that look on my face, perhaps cars would leave me the fuck alone, and leave a wide berth. Dude looks mean. MEAN!

  2. it’s great to hold form. good to see it in advance, the skill to call it.

    i’m slow, i’m fart. suck.
    go to the buffet and eat.
    get winter over.

  3. Flecha, one of my most favorite bike racers out there today. He is a hard man, and does it right.

  4. I’m guessing the vents are plugged as the day was cold and wet. Not a bad idea really and not rocket engineering.
