DDV: FGBC Spring Classics Pool Update

Charlene's Team OYNG (Obviously You're Not a Golfer) wins the day with a nicely diversified approach: 275 pts from Eeckhout, 100 from Fischer, and 70 from Van Dijk to go along with a paltry 5 points from Tom "remember when I was a badass bike racer" Boonen, who finished a disappointing 37th. You can almost hear the Belgian media wanting to come out and say that he sucks, but they can't quite get themselves to do it. In all fairness, though, he crashed yesterday and then didn't seem inclined to take any risks on the wet roads. Still, to put it all in perspective, after last year's Dwars Door Vlaanderen he had already accumulated 1250 points. This year he's sitting at 350. But there are two more races this weekend, so it's not too late to lose hope just yet. At least that's what Charlene and Vic are telling themselves. With 450 points on the day, Team OYNG doubles its point total and now sits solidly in the middle of the pack at 880. If the real Tom Boonen were to show up, they'd be right up there in the top 3.

I thought, as long as I was still ahead of Jonny G, I would still have my pride, but now I don't even have that anymore.
