A sunday’s ride: Rapha’s Hell Of The North 3

Nice ride, despite 3 punctures on my rear tubular (of which the 3rd became a 4th whith the case splitting).
Had to glue a new tub, and arrived late, but just in time to see Boonen in his last 10km to victory.

The bike was great, but the Challenge-Strada tubs proved to be a bit too fragile.
And the bottle cage gave me a bit of trouble. Is a Velo Orange, a very lightweight one, and the water bottle would rattle a lot on rough terrain. Eventually the bottle cage broke, and had to find a space in the -already overcrowded- jersey pockets! You can actually see the “lump” on my lower back 😦

Approaching, and steaming trough!

And I like red wine, Leffe and Gulden Draak beer. Sometimes, I like to go out, Clubbing 'til late, but I hate the journey back home....! :-
