2008 4 Jours de Dunkerque - Stage 1

54th 4 Jours de Dunkerque - 2.HC
France, May 6-11, 2008

I was hoping to watch some of the race but it appears we won't get anything until this weekend and it's going to be a busy one with the Giro starting. :-) I'm already getting a good fill of reading up on it and awaiting John and Diane's return to catch up. Hopefully Grandpa will have some new pics of the Puma too. The latest he shared were so darn adorable! Today's stage didn't quite go the way it should've with a break away actually staying out and taking the stage. On a smiling note Mike finished in front of Will and Will finished 69th. Ha Ha! Okay so that was bad but it's been a really long day.

And this fun bit, along with the Feed the Warrior, and another Dick's commercial here are unrelated to this race but it certainly made me laugh. And this video is just one I like. And of course the 99-05 highlights. With his new shop opening on the 10th I'm sure more will be written soon.

For other notes read tonight. Check out Ted King's Bathroom Humor. And Brad Huff is racing! Yeah!
