Words Of Wisdom

"If you have the chance to take a win, you can't let it slip away"-Phillipe Gilbert

If you want to know what it takes to be a "hardman" take a look at Saturdays Omloops Het Volk in Belgium. Gilbert was the definition of a hardman on Saturday after he launched an attack with 60kms to go on the Eikenberg. Gilbert joined Eddy Merckx and Johan Musseuw as only the only rider to win the race twice. He also made a move that would make the Cannibal proud, launching himself with more than 37 miles to the finish. Apparently no one else thought it would work either! Gilbert managed a blistering 31mph average over the last several sections of pave' to hold on for the solo win. Glory through better believe it!
