I take my hat off to you, Johan!
Kudos to Johan, what a great race! i was around after the "everybody's race" a long time to cheer a friend of mine who had won 2nd place with her girl's team (Birgit, great show! )
When we started to leave the Pro's race finish was in the last three laps; i had to stay despite being cold and wet to see a fellow weight weenie in the breakaway group and take third place!

martin finished 200th place out of 1582 riders reaching the finish.
At 2:15.59,9 (which equals to an average speed of 34,721 km/h) he was only 15 minutes slower than the winner.
Also very respectable IMHO.
Thanks Florian, you make me blush
I had decided to go there only last week, so i was in a bad starting position (second block - 500guys in front of you) and thus had to jump groups and close gaps all the time; and i crashed some 10km from the finish line when accelerating from a hairpin bend. Those Dugast tires seem to be a little on the delicate side in wet conditions
But the Lightweights performed well even in the descents (Shimano Carbon pads rock!) an i'm quite satisfied with my result.

it was REALLY wet
makes me wonder how fast i could've been had i had time to fit the new BB no blame, Florian; It arrived on friday alright, but i got in a traffic jam so i didn't have any time...
