Cancellara Breaks Away

Just notice how fast Fabian (in the Swiss Army Knife red jersey) put distance between himself and his pursuers when he kicked it. I enjoyed it when the announcer broke into English: "Oola,la,la,la, Ballen(?), we have a prob-lem. Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom." Fabian broke away, caught the lead group and rested a bit, then left everyone.

Extremely impressive! I showed that to some of my younger students. They were somewhat confused but still impressed. They kept asking me why I wasn't riding in that race.

Thanks! Very impressive.

I loved watching this race. I think I must've channeled FC tonight in the local Wed. night ride, which is competitive out front. I rode pretty safe at the back for a while, then, when the time was right, bridged to the lead group as fast as I could. Only one guy hung on. Then, as luck would have it, after getting a bit of air, I got into just the right place to attack the lead group coming into the last stretch, and it felt real good to swing wide, stand and decimate them. Of course, this is a bunch of mostly graying amateurs. still, the sport as sport can be very fun.
