Anyone who saw Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad will almost certainly say that it is one of the best races, well, ever in the history of roads.

It was another Belgian race with Etixx-QuickStep doing the majority of the work for the majority of the race – but the finale couldn’t have been more different from yesterday. Mark Cavendish ensured his team wouldn’t get another spanking when they got into the team bus by passing Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) in the last few metres for his second Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne victory.

And just for good measure, another video from the Snow Epic 2014, last year in the Swiss Alps, 5 stages over 3 days.

Many, many years ago, when I was a kid, Santa put a pack of Western Gunfighters Top Trumps in my stocking, and it wasn’t long before I was hooked on comparing who had the highest price on their heads and who had the most kills.

We have Jack Bobridge’s (unsuccessful) hour attempt, Bernie‘s Luca-like beardage, Fabs and the Force and Mick Jagger‘s continuing solo tour of lonely places.
