Nice action shots from Thierry Beguin, a great Belgium fan a photographer!
I felt like a old steam train during one of my favorite races. My throat was sore, my breathing was hurting and the worst was the mucus.
At least my "pipes" cleaned up with during the race, so as I passed around 20 riders on the last laps. I hate not to be part of the front action... have had to ask Benno who finished in the top five at the end!
Luckily Burry won a 3l Chouffe beer bottle. He likes to share :-) Wish I could have shared some of mine!
