Random Thought of the Day

Here's mine: Following is Belgium's squad for the 2006 World Championship road race (courtesy of the Youtube of Cycling Startlist-related websites), one for which they were understandably motivated, right?

1 BOONEN Tom
2 BAGUET Serge
3 DEVOLDER Stijn
4 GILBERT Philippe
5 HOSTE Leif
6 HULSMANS Kevin
7 MARICHAL Thierry
8 NUYENS Nick
9 VAN GOOLEN Jurgen

I can understand losing to Bettini, even Valverde... but how did they fail to place anyone higher than 9th? Does being a flahute and all that implies about crappy spring weather thereby exclude one from having form in the fall?
