Well, 20 minutes to go and it looks like Stybar again. Sucker punched Nys a la Cancellara at PR this year. It's going to take a monumental effort for Nys to get back on the wheel now.
 
Why Sucker? Also thought of Cancellara/Boonen and Styby has no earphone. :p

Loved the podium ceremony. They had prepared the Belgian anthem. Styby laughed. Then silence, they're looking for the Czech anthem and Michel Wuyts making a joke live: "They've found a solution. Stybar will sing it." :D:D



By the way, I was shocked and really upset to hear during the coverage that Simunek sr had passed away, recently. I hadn't heard the news anywhere, before and seems it was back in early August. I now understand why Simunka jr is not doing well in this early season. Wish him all the best for the rest and to find motivation back top form asap. RIP Rado sr. :(

Sorry - that's an English colloquialism 'sucker punch' meaning to spring a surprise on someone or to catch somebody unawares :confused:

+1 RIP Rado Sr

OK sorry, I didn't know that.

Thought you meant wheelsucker:D, which definitely can't be said about Stybar.


By the way, there were 4 male Americans in Aigle yesterday (JPow, Driscoll, Page and Johnson !!) + Compton.
