Reader Minnesotafats sent us a photo from Ronde van Vlaanderen.

That’s a Hugga Wool Tee and what a great race Flanders was.

The classics are what got me into the sport. Sure, I knew about the Tour, but watching grainy videos in a bike shop and hearing legendary stories of these races is what amazed me. To see these hard men, grind over cobbles, with brute force I found more interesting than the finesse, climbing, and time-trialing of the Tour. George Hincapie said as much in his Versus interview before the start.

Someday we hope to blog up a Classic.
