Post-Cobbles Mondaze...


Today we turn the page on life. The Cobbles Year is over, and yes, I have protective plastic sheeting over my keyboard right now. Frankly, I'm a bit worn out, but in a week or so when I get my first impulse to preview the 2012 Ronde van Vlaanderen, the gravity of the situation will finally hit home. I'm OK LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU time to watch E3 replays. Where are the frieten!?

OK, that will take some more time. So while I'm clinging to the last cobbles, let's look back on the previous week.

Romance? You want romance?!

We stepped up and did our part to help send Jimbo overseas preserve the pave of France, giving over $1300 to Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix. With whom we also spoke.

Previewing Paris-Roubaix, we left no stone unturned. And no wrench too. Oh, and our videos went viral. Then we watched the master, and when it was over, we read books.

We weighed in on an odd idea for a women's race at the Tour of California. Maybe a little too odd. On the women's side we also watched the Energiewacht Tour and met Alyssa.

Lastly, we pimped our killer new t-shirts! We will be placing the order this week, and while this isn't your last chance to buy -- we'll have some extras -- we're hoping to get as many pre-orders as possible. Apparel orders are tricky business for people with no skills of that variety, so we're trying to get the numbers right. Like I said, this isn't your last chance if you are truly undecided or not ready. But if you're planning to buy and now is as good a time as any, my message is that now is actually much better. Thanks!
