Yesterday I was sitting behind a desk, working for The Man, and having random thoughts about bikepacking. When out of nowhere Cupcake pings me with a link to the live feed of of the E3 Harelbeke.
“I don’t know what the commentators are saying, but these guys are pinning it.”
He was right about that one, they were hauling ass. The E3 has evolved into a little mini spring classic. It has everything us fan-boys want from a spring race. Shitty weather, narrow streets, powerful attacks, and riders absolutely ripping each other’s legs off. Perfect filler for that dead space between Milan-San Remo and Flanders. All the big boys are on form and look ready to mix it up. The next couple of weekends sure are going be fun to watch.
Big Swiss took the win in great style.
Then there is the only picture from the race that really matters:
