Open Thread: Happy Friday!

You know what time it is, amiright?

This weekend we have some bike racing. Lessee... In California, we have the Redlands Bicycle Classic. In Italy, we have Trofeo Alfredo Binda. In Spain, the Volta Catalunya (which I'm totally not spelling right. Boo me!) In France, we have Critérium International. And last but certainly far from least, in Belgium we have Gent-Wevelgem. Now, with a women's race, too! That, my friends, is a whole lot of bike racing.

It was some ride from Tom Boonen today, right? You just don't win five editions of a race every day. I like how crafty Oscar Freire always seems to come out of nowhere. And, I love watching Sep Vanmarcke blow himself to bits. Dude's crazy. And I like crazy. This cobbles season, it's looking so gooood. So good.

Cancellara, meanwhile, had a not-so-awesome day.

Apparently, someone also stole Cancellara's front wheel. Awww, don't be sad Fabian! There's still lots of awesome bike races left!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and may all your cycling dreams come true!
