Vansummeren wins!

A brief update today:
You probably already know that Johan Vansummeren won the 109th running of Paris Roubaix. I would have preferred Tommeke to match "Monsieur Paris-Roubaix," Roger De Vlaeminck,  but at least it is a Belgian victory. Kudos to Peter van Petegem for teaching the Garmin boys, and although he may have preferred Thor, Vansummeren is in some ways even better. And Thor did play his part and block. Vansummeren was so ecstatic after the race, he asked his girlfriend to marry him. Other shots posted on Twitter show Vansummeren drinking champagne with Peter and his family.

Superswiss Cancellara found out what it is like to have to do all the work of bridging. He was in many ways in the same situation Tom was in last year.

As for Quick-step, it is a pity they hit the cobbles. First Tom flatted in Arenberg and then he crashed. I hope Tom recovers quickly.

More later.
