Then there is Kevin Van Hoovels. A disgrace to Belgians everywhere.
What would VDB say?
As for me… there will be no crying as I get on a plane tomorrow for Vermont. It’s Single Speed USA time and a whole bunch of AZ-DC kids are heading out that way. Drunkcyclist is sponsoring the mid-race “aid station” and it should be a pretty good time for all. You remember the last time we had an aid station on course? It will be something like that, only better.
If you are coming to the race be sure to say hello. If you live anywhere near the area, get in the car and drive. It’s going to be one hell of a party. Hopefully I will have a full report to you by next Tuesday. No promises.
until then…keep it dirty!
