Lars Boom is da bomb!
Now I've seen quite a few of our US pro Cyclocross dudes race; and I thought these guys were seriously fast! Well, a few of our boys are over in Europe competing in the Cross World championships, and they are getting their proverbial asses handed to them by the Europeans. Lars Boom and Sven Nys in particular are suspected (by me) of having super human strength. These guys are like flippin machines. For example, Sven Nys is the ATHLETE OF THE YEAR in Belgium. Not some soccer/football player, or any other type of ball sport type--a CYCLIST is the athlete of the year. They take their cycling seriously in Belgium! Huup!
