As I approached it, there were three cyclist exiting - coated in brown butter. Naturally my priority was the bike, so I tip-toed through it. Looking back, I saw a few more on their tippies following suit. Hey, you can effortly wash the clothes but bike parts take longer to wash are expensive to replace if the mud ruins them.
Soon after, I was at the end of the tour - behind the Scott Bicycle Showroom in Kortenberg. The first thing i saw was a line of cyclists waiting for the water sprayer. I bet i know what they are thinking...if it wasn't for that last 100 meters of mud, I'd be drinking my beer by now. And i bet you know what I was thinking...tip-toeing rules! Sip, sip.
In addition to the beer cafe, they had lots of vendors showing off their latest gadgets, pills, parts, publications and rags.
Aside from the little kid that spent a full ten minutes staring me down, what impressed me most was the Scott Cross bike in the showroom. It was super mega light, completely tricked out and 5,100€ retail. Wanna know what i want for Christmas? (This does not, in any way, minimize my love for my Ahrens Whole Shot. Lust and love are completely different.)
