The Stoepidest Week – 5 Classics in 7 days.

Thank you Castelli for your great support in this ridiculous undertaking. It made a massive difference to have the best equipment a cyclist could ever need.

1250 kilometers over seven days.
Sunday: Gent-Wevelgem
Monday: Tour of Flanders
Tuesday: Rest day.
Wednesday: Paris-Roubaix
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: Amstel Gold
Saturday: Liege-Bastogne-Liege


Almost halfway.  I don’t suppose I need to add that this is much harder than we could have possibly imagined.  But somehow we continue, not without some excitement, for the Paris-Roubaix tomorrow.  For some of us, this is the most fearful ride of the week.  For others, the worst is over.  And for the one Belgian, it’s the last two days in the Ardennes that bring the terror.  As if any of these are easy.



Seven days, five Classics, and we’re done.  It was a long, long day, at the end of a long week.  Pretty early in, we knew we might not make the full loop.  And as soon as this realization set in – it was time to sit down and drink a Jupiler.
