Fleche Wallone 2011

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

Gilbert made it look stupidly easy up the Mur de Huy to the finish. It hard to believe that the guy can put 15 seconds on Contador in less than 400 meters which took around 50+seconds. And he didn’t even ride hard all the way to the line.

    That was insane how Gilbert just road away from the field. What is Omega-Pharma feeding those guys? And, why wasn’t he marked by anyone?

    Mark him? He went to the front with 600 meters to go and just rode away from the front. How do you mark him on that % of a grade as the Huy?

    Man that was an insane sprint Gilbert did… would like to see his power numbers for the last k.
