Unbelievable weekend as you've all read by now. Compton is absolutely sick and deserving of the world cup win....the first by an American. Seeing her last weekend at the Redline and Boulder Cups, my buds and I were drop-jawed at her power. The sand was nothing for her....and literally she rode the entire sections while most the men's pros and 35 opens ran it. Sick.

Boom. That was the sound Lars made blowing Sven (his teamate...ha!) and everyone else up. Wellens had a great weekend obviously but Sven was not Nijs this weekend.

Totally weird observation. When Sven suffers, he switches his porting technique. Even in total deep mud like today, when he is on song, he ports under the down tube. But when the suffering sets in, he wraps the head tube. Weird. Maybe I'm just a total geek but it's just something I've noticed after watching zillions of hours of Flemish.

That run had a high-speed entry. I've found that grabbing the top-tube, and hence wrapping the head-tube, is a bit easier when going fast, than reaching down a bit more for the down tube.

Damn it Keller - that's CIA analyst observation skill level shit! Haven't checked in on M & C in a few weeks. Glad I did - it actually keeps my motivation level at the bare min. to do a few races!

See you Thursday. B
