It was a sprint down to the very core. None afterwards knew who won the race. Planckaert i think won be a centimetre or something like that.

Winning this race with a sprint tells you about a very special race indeed. But Bauer took the defeat with style i remember (didn´t questioned the outcome and was very gracile in defeat).

Classic race.

lots of respect for ten dam
According to the reports, there will likely be (a) scar(s). Nothing broken, but a big cut on his nose that needed to be stitched.

Come to think of it, actually Contador would have won that Tour if Rasmussen wasn't allowed in that break at Tignes(where Contador even had a flat tire and lost time to Cuddles). And he also had a flat tire at Briancon or he would have taken time on Rasmussen.

Beautiful photo though, especially in combination with the Flemish flag.

I was at the bottom of the Aubsique that day on some dude's TV in his caravan and after Chicken won, some English guy turned at me with a smile and said he put 50 quid on Rasmussen to win the Tour (before the race began) and at the time he stood to make a nice tidy sum of money. I don't think he was smiling the next day.

Expect Parrulo to post a 'Cool story bro' meme in 5..4..3. ****.

From a race today (ave. speed approx 42km/h). I was standing on a hill with my 300mm lense on my camera, and it was the sprint on the last lap. The strange thing was that a four man break had stayed away (nearly lapped the bunch), and another 3 man break was ahead (I had no idea why they attacked, they had zero chance of bridging up to the leading break), and one guy went off road as he was forced off by some crazy idiots in the sprint.
