On Sunday, after Boonen’s win at Flanders who blows past on Mercer Island? Boonen with a soul patch and steel bike. How’d we know it was Boonen? The wool jersey with the Belgian Tricolors on it!
After hearing the unmistakable sound of a catch about to happen from behind, it was “on.” I countered with a strong indication I wasn’t going to get dropped on the next riser and after a few more accelerations, we stopped to chat at the next stop sign.
An 80s steel bike was all this Boonen needed. A Grandis.
