If GVA doesn't win this I'll start laughing. Unless Devolder comes back.

Phil was in the early break last year in the Tour of Belgium and he'd have won that Tour if it wasn't for his mechanical in the last stage and the fact he had to do the time trial when it was raining(Devolder when it was dry)

I don't agree, but that's personal taste and very off-topic

I guess there's no chance of Phil coming out of the bushes to help his good friend GVA?

Well, there are obviously uglier places in poor countries, but this is a really ugly city for a well developed country.
