To come out punching

I can only shrug my shoulders at the outcome, and perhaps feel we were a little cheated.

The fireworks, a burst of explosive speed, bridging across and driving on. Our spectacle and their chance of escape foiled by high tempo. Chavanel under team orders, Ribellin trying in vain, Bettini's absence noticeable.

Until next year. Yet I shall return to the concept of the Puncheur, and it's relevance to cyclocross in further posts.

Until then. The jewels in the Spring Classic crown.

Ronde Van Vlaanderen & Paris-Roubaix - Puncheur vs Rouleur.
