Never mind.
Would've been greater disappointment if Omloop was cancelled.

Reading a debate about the physiological impossibility of eyeball freezing is really a pi$$ poor substitute for reading about and watching a race...but I guess it's all we got, so somebody better start digging up some facts...on second thought, my bed is nice and warm. I think I'll just go back to sleep.

If I knew how to post a picture here I would show you how it would be impossible to race in these conditions.

Needless to say I didn't go for the traditional Sunday morning group ride either.

Not rideable, it would have been a very poor competition.

They aren't riding for free, and I know lots of people who'd do it just for fun and joy.
No one is forced to risk, just like on GT descents... Who wants to compete will compete regardless of conditions.


Oh yeah. Here they come again, the infamous people from 'the entertain me crew'. Sitting on your ar-se in front of television all day eating popcorn while watching others endangering their health. Classy.

Right click a picture. Choose "copy picture's URL" and then just put that URL in between the IMG brackets.

Not very happy about the races cancellation, I got up at 4:50 AM to watch it! :mad:
But probably the best decision, but I would have loved to see a race through the snow. It would finally expose who the real hard men are in the peloton! :p
