Race Report to Come; Just Not My Own.

People of the Internet! I'm resurrecting the blog, possibly temporarily, possibly not. We'll see how it goes. I just got back from a mind-exploding trip to the spring cobbled classics of cycling, the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. Each race is an incredible spectacle and a testament to human toughness, grit, and the ability to develop buttocks of titanium through hard training. But one of the things that inspired me most about the trip was the people I met who love cycling and endurance events and, in some cases, push through a lot of inconvenience and pain to take part in them. I will write more on this because it's tying in with various things I've been thinking about. Meanwhle here's a picture of cycling's most charismatic rider (IMHO), Fabian Cancellara, three-time Flanders winner. Followed by Sep Vanmarcke, Spartacus is chasing down a breakaway on the way to this year's victory.
