I am not Belgian. Let's just get that part straight. I do love it there - I think. I lived there once, for 2 years. I was a kid though. I remember it, but I was 16-18 years old. There are other things that are more important to a 16 year old than the lore of bike racing and how Belgium is the center of that universe.
But, I lived there. I lived on a cobbled street even. I would love to say that I knew from then, just knew that a cobbled road and all the greatness that goes along with that would be super important to me in the future. Alas, I was just a kid. 16 and stupid.
Now of course, just the mention of Belgium and I get all goose bumped for the thought of crosswinds and cobbles and epic racing. Yow. It is only 10ish months till next years race season starts and we are back in Belgium.
In the mean time, here are the last pictures from our Roubaix trip this year.
That is it.
More good stuff coming to this space soon though. Stay in touch.
