some snippets from Cycling News' coverage:
Sylvester Szmyd (Lampre) is on the start ramp. He starts what is the last downhill of the day. After two metres he is on the climb.
There are a ton of people. Rujano stomps on the pedals. 400m to go. He will get a new best, if he doesn't collapse first!
250m to go. He is doing sort of a sprint. In slow motion.
Belgian TV had a breif shot of a High Roader (Adam Hansen I think), who apparently collapsed after finishing.
Better them than me.
:edit: Belgian TV interviewed Jurgen Van Den Broeck, who used a 34x29!
