An obscure Euro-racing note: The Riddler won the Grand Prix d’Ouverture La Marseillaise, the first race of Europe’s bike racing season.
Apparently French law prohibits the advertising of foreign lotteries, so the Unibet.com squad raced in the question mark jerseys. Holy smokes, Batman, the Riddler can sprint too.
And another Euro note: There is a great slideshow of the cyclocross worlds, showing some of the craziness attending the event, here. Can’t imagine crowds like that (and the beer!) at a race here.
