Citadel Namen - GVA Trofee's First Round
After slipping out of my muddy one-piece, drinking my recovery shake and riding the trainer a bit, we checked out the men's event. It was amazing to see how fast these guys take the tricky descents.
For those of you who are JP fans, he kicked ass! He rode top ten for most of the race before slipping back into 13th. I was especially excited to see Sven Nys get his legs back so soon after dropping out of the Treviso World Cup the week previous. And today, in Ruddervorde Superprestige, he WON!!! He started near the back of the field due to low UCI points, climbed back up to the front, bridged to World Champ Niels Albert, then rode away from him. The fans went crazy! I must admit I screamed at the TV screen a few times.
