The 2012 edition of the Tour of Flanders is in the books, I was up at 6:30 to catch the start of the live coverage, I put on a pot of coffee, poured me some hair of the dog, and plopped my fat ass down on the couch to watch. In the end Boom Boom Boonen took his third victory, proving that when you stop using cocaine good things will happen to you. Below are some videos from the race if you missed it.
Final 1 K, and link if the video wont play for you.
Crash at 35 k that really shook things up and link if the video wont play for you.
Spartacus goes down in the feed zone and breaks his collarbone, link if the video wont play for you.
Langeveld goes down, link if the video wont play for you.
Last 20 K, odds are you wont be able to understand a word, but I know you will be bored at work Monday morning, link if the video wont play for you.
Start of the women’s edition was all I could find in my quick search on youtube, so if anyone knows where to see more footage please post in the comments. Big congrats to Judith Arndt for taking the win, and also to America’s own Kristen Armstrong (who does crazy offseason workouts like giving birth to a child) on her second place finish. All of these gals are tougher than me, and most of you.
