Luca Paolini: A Big Classic Victory

One for the old guys!
via 1.skysports



Luca Paolini won today's Omloop Het Nieuwsblad escaping with former teammate Stijn Vandenbergh in a cold classic breakaway.

It was cold with temps hovering around -1C, all the riders wore thermal clothing. One guy I spotted not wearing gloves was ironman Heinrich Haussler. The 36 year old cagey veteran didn't have any troubles with the weather shaking off the Omega rider to take a long sprint to win. Paolini's talent as a domestique overshadows his wins, it has been a long time winning a major classic since the 2004 Brabantse Prjl.

A great win for the Italian and for Katusha too, I can hear Paolini/Katusha saying, 'I told you sold UCI!'
