tweeted and it's true. Snow, mud, heavy wet fiel in Hoogstraten. A beautiful icy lucid light. Sven Nys and Klaas Vantornout in front, exciting duel. Pauwels chasing solo. Then the peloton.
When Vantornout passed Nys I jumped on my chair: I LIKE Klaas. To be honest... ehm... I find him the sexiest in the cross peloton. And I'd like to see him beat the unbattable Nys. Sometimes it happens. Not today. Nys passed him again at the last lap. Vantornout entered first the last curve but didn't sprint: Nys won easily. The duel was already over.
