Just a few things:
- There was a race today in Surhuisterveen (Holland). Guess who won the womens race? Indeed, It was Marianne Vos. Also on the podium: PdC favourite Helen Wyman and Anna Van der Breggen. Results
- No Nys, Albert, Styby or Pauwels in the men's race, but the Dutch riders Boom and Van der Haar did show up. I was too late for the race, but from what I saw, it looks like Boom had a mechanical in the start. He had to run all the way to the pits before he could start a loooong chase. In the end he finished 15th, but he had probably hoped for more
- More results here
- Some punk threw a beer in Styby's face during the last lap of the Diegem race. Styby's unhappy about that.
- Sven Nys is better already. He announced today that he'll definitely start in sunday's World Cup race in Rome - good news.
- Jan Denuwelare finally got a spot in the Belgian World Cup squad. These are the ten (!) Belgian riders: Bart Aernouts, Niels Albert, Jan Denuwelaere, Tom Meeusen, Sven Nys, Kevin Pauwels, Rob Peeter, Dieter Vanthourenhout, Klaas Vantornout and Bart Wellen. We get to send ten this time because we've got the world champion and the current leader in the UCI CX-ranking.
