It’s time to start this thing we call the Spring Classics. In my opinion, everything up until now has been a cock tease, foreplay if you will. This picture has been the desktop on my work computer for 2 years now. It inspires me to no end.
There is a guy at the office that I talk cycling with and he is always trying to bust my balls over how much of a fan-boy I am for Tom Boonen. I simply just point to this picture. That is the complete destruction of Fabian Cancellara and Alessandro Ballan. One is the best time trialist of modern times and the other went on to win the rainbow jersey that same year in one very impressive attack. These guys know how to hurt, and after 259km they have the guts to throw down a sprint like THIS! And this is only one example!! Over the next 4 weeks we will witness some amazing shit. Starting tomorrow with Milan-San Remo, then Ghent-Wevelgem, Tour of Flanders, and then capping off this party is Paris-Roubaix!
Lets see some smack talk in the comments. Any predictions? This next 4 weeks is my equivalent of March Madness and I can’t wait.
Waste some time with these:
A classic among classics: 1992 Milan-San Remo
Pure horsepower in the 2007 Gent Wevelgem
Stijn Devolder putting his mushroom stamp on the 2008 Tour of Flanders
George’s 2006 Paris-Roubaix bummer
Supposedly Vaughters will be updating his Twitter from the team car tomorrow at Milan-San Remo
Have a great weekend everybody!by
