CyclingNews' coverage of the Etoile de Bessege takes time to point out that Franck Vandenbroucke finished 16 minutes down in his effort to recapture his past glory. I will never understand the media obsession with VDB. He had talent, he pissed it away... so he's the Maurice Clarett of cycling. So freakin what?
Anyway, another long-standing tradition here at the Podium Cafe is open threads, so here you go.
