Vitesse gains wild card berth in Ronde van Vlaanderen
Surprisingly, Team Vitesse has secured a place for the start of the Tour of Flanders this Sunday. This monument in the pantheon of one day spring classic races was never a focus of Johan or Team Vitesse. But since they were in the neighbourhood and the Team HQ Winnebago is running so well, the team and management thought it might be propitious to show the team Plycra in northern Belgium. "It is for our sponsor, Happy Lucky 88 Manufactory that we enter this race. We are feeling good despite our weakened immune systems", said a team member. Watch for Vitesse to figure prominently near the broom wagon.
