Controversy and rapture

Alessandro Petacchi won the sprint in the second stage of the Giro today. Man-missile Cavendish was upset and filed a complaint, but the overhead clearly shows that nothing fishy happened and Cav just made the wrong decision.

In Duinkerken, Kittel won another stage making it four, while French rider Thomas Voeckler grabbed the overall classification. Zdenek Stybar brought luster to his road debut by showing himself repeatedly and taking third overall.

Meanwhile, our next stage race, the Ster der Vlaamse Ardennen is filling up and I hope to finalize the team by the weekend. Everyone should get their deposit in by May 21 at 6 PM, because I heard the world will be ending then and we will experience rapture and big earthquake here in California. This will be followed by other earthquakes around the country. But perhaps more importantly, the organizer needs a filled out registration sheet by May 22, and rapture notwithstanding, I do not want to miss that date.

Please get your deposits in before the world ends

I am also looking into opportunities for 16-18 yr olds to go race in Belgium over the summer. No stage races or interclubs, but kermesse races galore.

I will be absent from the blog for the next two days, but hope to see you all again on Wednesday.
