|The house that Flanders Built|
Once we arrived we drove down to Oudenaarde to pick up my brother and fathers numbers for the citizens ride on Saturday. While there we also decided to hit the Centrum Ronde Van Vlaanderen as well. That was so sweet.
We had literally just walked in the door when I spotted a group of likely suspects hanging around an exhibit. On closer inspection I saw George Hincapie and Freddy Maertens speaking to a large group.
I immediately saw it for what it was. A group of retailers getting the full song and dance and sure enough it was a whole bunch of BMC dealers from the USA getting a personal tour with Freddy. I walked up and struck up a conversation with one of the dealers and it turned out that he was currently employing one of my former ski buddies at his shop. Before you knew it we were part of the group and listening to personal stories from Freddy and George on the race. My father and brother were super, super stoked and it was cool to experience it.
