Amstel Gold Flashback

Did you ever wonder what kind of idle chit-chat takes place among former world champion pro cyclists while they’re waiting for a Classic to start? Click on the photo to find out what my ears on the ground overheard between Igor Astarloa (Milram) and Oscar Freire (Rabobank) just prior to the kickoff of the 2007 Amstel Gold.

  1. O. M. G.

  2. Well done. I’m gradually warming to Freire; but, jeez, couldn’t _one_ of his world titles have gone to Zabel instead??

  3. I love it….keep up the great dialogues, they are classic. The Denny’s Dutch Slam had me spitting coffee this morning.

  4. Beautiful!! You have really opened Freire world for us. FYI next time your laptop crashes (and it will) let me know asap, I will mail you one of my model t’s! I cant take this much time between Struts.

  5. I dig and respect Freire. He’s a monster with few equals. He’s also got the early season paunch that adds to his mystique. Bravo.
