Anthony announced a couple times during today's amazing action that they have secured the rights to show the race of the year, the Tour of Flanders, live next Sunday! Ah, the ebbs and flows of life. All winter long I and several others have been salivating over this race, for numerous reasons which we'll be beating into the ground over the next week, including the Bettini intrigue. Then, as the race drew nearer, it became evident that de Ronde just might be the one Monument -- heck, race of almost any kind -- that we wouldn't be able to see live. And Bettini cracked some ribs. Now both problems appear solved: Bettini was a major protagonist today, and we've got our live coverage. I'm definitely saying ten Hail Cycling's before going to bed tonight.
