Kbk

Anybody follow KBK this year. Fantastic tactical race. Amazing how Boonen just controlled each break he was in and never sat back waiting for a free ride. Nick Nuyens owes him one very big leadout for this beauty.

Also, Quick-Step was enetered in 4 races over the weekend (2 in Belgium and 2 in Italy) and won 3 of them! KBK, Lugano and Chiasso!

Winning brings confidence and with confidence comes more wins!

I watched K-B-K live on Cycling.tv, I love that site.

Boonen is on a freakin' roll this year, and with the team he has backing him up, it looks like there's no stopping him.

Oops. Thought I was hip to everything Pro, but...
Must've been the O's on the end.
Swiss can't figure out if they are Italian, German or French!

they're a little bit of all them, depending on where you are. In the end guess they're 100% swiss.
