He may turn 39 in December, but Belgian veteran Niko Eeckhout still knows how to suffer, win races and wear cycling caps.
The man from Izegem took out Tuesday’s GP Stad Zottegem from the likes of Jurgen Roelandts and in-form Dane Martin Pedersen.

My main man and Colombian climbing ace Maurcio Soler will be leaving Barloworld to ride for Caisse d’Epargne in 2010. Thats good news in my book and is it just me or is that hill he is climbing in this picture the steepest mother of all.
