Could you ask for anything more? After spending a good portion of the day riding in the cold rain I went into school for a couple of hours to prep for the week. Upon returning home, I plopped my ass on the couch and watched the "Ronde van Vlaanderen". The climbs were tremendous. The race itself was fantastic. It went down to the last few kilometers where the chase group pulled to within nine seconds, but Stijn Devolder was able to hold them off. Big George Hincapie rode to fifth and looked exhausted after finishing.
