Open Thread: it's Flanders' Friday

Marcato_friday_medium

Gav is on the road to somewhere (or nowhere, that's cool too), so you'll have to live with my subconscious ramblings for today.

You probably think you know what I'm going to talk about. I bet you think you know what I'm going to talk about. It's RVV time after all! I hope you're all stocking up on beers and French fries to survive the mighty holy day that is this Sunday. Me, I have a bet with a co-worker that Chava is going to win on Sunday. And you? What do you think?

Oh, and if you're one of them crazy blasphemous types who doesn't like cobbles... well, in that case we're no longer friends, for one. But if you are, then you can talk about the new - all white! - shorts of the new Argos-Shimano team (which is actually the old 1t4i R2D2 Skil team), which don't really leave much to the imagination. Finally, we'll be able to tell if winning ssr's really makes them happy.

Chris Threadjack: We do polls! [Update] and photos! Op de flip...

Here's the Paterberg today:

Coupla pros. Love the angle. But what I love even more: the gutter is blocked! Ride the stones, boys. OK, to the Kopp...
