While that cycling world is anxiously awaiting la Primavera, aka Milano-San Remo, I am sure folks in Belgium are really much more interested in tomorrow's edition of Nokere Koerse, won last year by none other than promising neo-pro Jens Keukeleire.
Today is also a sad day for Belgian cycling. 40 years ago, on March 15, 1971, then world champion Jean Pierre Monseré ("Jempi") was killed during a bike race. He was 21 years old.
I dug up some more photos to entertain you while I am on my blogular holiday. Here are some shots from my first Iron distance endurance race, the Great Floridian in Clermont, Florida. I finished eight in my age group, despite running out of food and suffering badly on the bike.

|That was easy!?|
And a very well worn race number from that infamous race.
