Weekend racing...

Incredible racing was on tap during the weekend. I mean, you've got Paris-Roubaix and the Little 500. I read somewhere that the Little 500 is the only live network broadcast of a bike race in the US. A little embarrassing considering the level of other races held in the states. Maybe it's because of videos like this that the Little 500 is televised live. I mean, who wouldn't want to see the potential carnage first hand - live in your living room!

I had a dream last week that Tom Boonen was going to win Paris-Roubaix. Too bad I don't have dreams about the winners of other sporting events or I could be making my fortune on sports bets. In this dream, I was watching some of the teams train on the cobbles. When I saw Boonen and team ride by, he had that supreme look of confidence that I said "he's going to win." I called it. Big Tom Boonen came around two previous Hell of the North winners like a Ferrari overtaking a Smart Car. Win with authority!
