More awesomeness from Sven Nys at Koksidje today - is in 19th and back 20 seconds with half the race run and still wins! He was taking 50 metres out of everyone on one long, sandy stretch, hanging back on the front pack and picking riders off one by one. One of the most controlled race wins I've ever seen.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Yes, Sanne Cant doesn't look happy about it. She was quite far back in 3rd.

Men's race was pretty good, nice to see someone other than Nys or Albert winning! And a pretty close finish as well.

Power X weight advantage I suspect, considering it is a sand dune course combined with their race being earlier so the course isn't so chewed up.

Rather disappointed they didn't integrate the BMX ramps into the circuit at today's round of the World Cup at Roubaix... :D

How Stybar can say that he didn't see Denuwalaere is ridiculous and why wasn't he DQ'd instead of just being relegated to 4th?

He was momentarily blinded by his competitive demons. In a tight situation any tactic that wins the battle is a possibility.

Does anyone know why Helen Wyman isn't wearing her national champs jersey anymore? Didn't think the nationals had taken place yet.

Apparently someone is making a film of her season, so perhaps this is to get the sponsor in the movie.
