This week, it was all about the cobbles – and it didn’t disappoint. We have before, during and after tweets of the 100th edge-of-your-seat Ronde van Vlaaderen. So let’s not hesitate …
Cycling through Bruges at night …
Waking up to your Instagram feed and realising what day it was.

Announcing the Etixx lineup – and a little speculation.
The Velvet Samurai got a special paint job
The #LadiesFavourite Bernie Eisel is back in the peloton. My, but we’ve missed him.
Always time for a fan.
And during the race, it wasn’t all just The Velvet Samurai, SacredHaunches and Sep Formica. Nooooo, it was Gorilla and Barbie, KwiatKrush and Best Hair in the peloton.
During the race, we didn’t see much of Sagan’s teammates it seemed.
A rough day
There was a lot of road rash and collarbone busts along the way.
Sit down, have a beer, have a girl wipe your face down with a big loofah mitt.
Yet somehow, not a hair out of place!
KwiatKrush, after he whistled his way over the Paterberg.
“So guys, I wonder what happened out there on the road. Shall we have a little chat when you’ve had a beer and a wipe down with the big loofah mitt?”
I don’t know who those people are who thought Flanders was boring but they weren’t watching the race I saw.
A monumental moment for the World Champion.
I wonder if it’s a Maserati …
Do you think he’ll get that bonus?
A worthy champion.
A sombre note
The start of the double rainbow day.
A wistful goodbye
This has obviously made me very very sad – seems unthinkable that we won’t see Fabs next spring.
Fabian has left the building
