"Gobsmackingly Brilliant" rides of 2000
Henk Vogels' First Union USPRO championship ride, hands down. With
less than 3k left in the 250 k race, Vogel makes a couple aborted stabs
at getting away from a final group that includes America's two best
road sprinters, George Hincappie and Fred Rodriguez. Each time he is
quickly brought back.
Then out of the blue the rest are coming back. Vogels glances over his shoulder and sees the jig is up. He sits up, looking fried. Flash forward to 1,500 meter to go. Rodriguez and Hincappie are watching each other as the line draw near. BANG, an attack from the rear. It's, it's, YIKES, it's Vogels back from the dead. The group hesitates. You know the rest.
