This week Lee Rodgers runs his eye over the debacle of Saturday's Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. The Etixx - Quick-Step team had the upper hand; three riders versus the solo Ian Stannard and what happened... Stannard won. Here is the 'Lowdown' on the in's and the out's, the excuses and where it all went wrong.
Two races in Belgium at the week-end, so we put Ed Hood roadside in Flanders, and he was in his element. Cobbles, riders, fans, bikes and beer; all you need for two full days of Flemish fun. Although it was a sober Ed who walked stunned out of a bar after Saturday's Het Nieuwsblad debacle!
