Wordless Wednesday: Dominance


Today's Wordless Wednesday photograph, I think, sums up the start of this season. Taken during today's Scheldeprijs it shows Tom Boonen putting down the hammer at the front of the peloton with his Omega Pharma team mates - this time not riding for himself but selflessly riding for Francesco Chicchi in between casually winning the Tour of Flanders and eyeing up Sundays Paris-Roubaix. Boonen set a relentless pace and strung out the Peloton, taking turns on the front right until the final 2km. Incredibly at one point Omega Pharma had all 8 riders at the front - A real show of Dominance, not just today by Boonen but by the whole team since the season began. Omega Pharma-Quick-Step are on fire...

  1. Follwing on from my comment in the Cake Stop category on Bike Radar, it was nice to discover your blog. I do not race or even follow racing all that closely but I do follow it in a kind of dabbling fashion and I've enjoyed lookin through your blog. i'll be back. From what you said in your remarks, you write your blog for much the same reason I write mine - as an outlet for cycling related ideas, thoughts and inspirations. In my case I am a magazine writer but the magazine for which I usually write - National Geographic - doesn't give me much scope to write about cycling, hence the blog.

    Again, i have njoyed browsin through your blog and will certainly return.
