Skinny tyres, drop handlebars and mud. Lots of mud.

According to his team manager, Hans van Kasteren, he survived a night of high fever (sat->sun) in which he was given only a 35% chance of survival. He's stable just now, organs which had failed are recovering, and the general direction is up, although he is not out of the woods yet, and his situation can still change in both directions.

Hope he pulls through fine.

Praying for Bart Wellens' swift recovery. Great rider and seems to be a great guy. Hope to see him bunny hopping barriers soon.

Doping sucks

Wouter, John and Xavi, you all will be missed.

Miss seeing Bart Wellens at the start line. Hope he recovers quickly.

What is a jersey that a bloke like Stybar will never possibly be entitled to win. :rolleyes:


Anyway, Kevin the best ! He's done it. :)

Great win for Iceman Tom, today. The way he manoeuvred the slalom in the woods was huge. A true snake. :)

Just the UCI World Cup races but if that's what you're after:

http://www.uci.ch/templates/BUILTIN-NOFRAMES/Template1/layout.asp?MenuId=MTUxNjc&LangId=1

Otherwise it seems you'd have to put one together from the different organisers websites.

Well, I'm embarrassed to admit I forgot about CX yesterday with GdL and all, but I see Mathieu has won. :D

Well, it was to be expected; he already was good with the pro's last year and he's in shape coming from a road season. Hopefully he planned his year better this time and he won't be exhausted in the latter part of the CX season again. But he didn't do too much road this year, so it should be fine I hope.

How did he win? Was it a dominant ride?
