So these are from the start of the Scheldeprijs in Antwerp (and then the podium in Schoten). We got lucky again with our spot selection at the start as my all time cycling hero Stuey pulled up right in front of us and was soon surrounded by Aussie riders, a couple of national champions and one very cool Swiss guy.
I love Stuey, I was reduced to total fangirl status in his presence...
Matti - is it just me or does Saxo have around 97% of the current national champions on their roster?
Tony got a huge welcome from the crowd, having won de Ronde a few days earlier...
To be honest, I'm not totally sure, but I think this Aerts - anyone?
Greg Henderson looks pretty serious, but he really is a nice guy, honest.
Stuey shows off this year's bike to Kurt
I'm betting that Renshaw has his helmet labelled so that Cav doesn't steal it when they room together.
Matt Goss tells Tony and Stuey a joke.
Mark Renshaw is interviewed mostly about his knee and recovery.
Gossy and Stuey both find Fabian's joke entertaining.
The sign of a true champion - Fabian signs a beer can for a fan... a sure sign you're in Belgium, or North Carolina, or Texas, or Australia... never mind.
Baden Cooke gets a stretch in before they roll out.
The podium - Tyler, Robbie and Robert
There are actually a few I left out (I'm considerate like that) but if you would like to see the full set, it's here.
