Paris to Roubaix ... on cobblestones

I was pulled into watching the 106th Classic Paris to Roubaix cycle race again this year ... and so very relived when Tom Boonen pulled out, speeding past the Swiss and Italian competitor in the final 200 metres.

Hearts all around Belgie will be slowly recovering from the tension of waiting to see if Tom could do it again.

Proficiat, Meneer Boonen!

You should have seen Maurice: tears in his eyes! And yes, the press will be looking for someone else to spit on! Too bad for the next. I hope Tommeke will end the Tour in green again.
See you!

I watched the last 10 kilometers, I think. I'm not that big of a cycling fan. One of the few. I'm so un-Flemish, lol.

On the other thing, try and memorize that rule, it will make your pronunciation immensely better.
