Don’t have much for you today. I woke up early and watched the last 30km live. I don’t know what is the matter with me. It is kind of amazing how few spectators there are at the finish. And at the start. They might as well be racing outside the Topeka city limits. I like it. Here are these guys that race in front of millions of people in July and are racing in front of dozens of people in February. And at a hard race at that. And the composition of the break. It is really surprising how many “sprinters” made that final group today. Renshaw, Boonen, O’Grady, Steegmans, Bennati, Roger Hammond, Jeremy Hunt, etc. Pretty unbelievable getting that selection in the crosswinds. Goes to show that positioning is so important. Boonen doesn’t seem to be having any knee problems so far this year. Watching, it looked like he went way too early, but that obviously wasn’t the case.
