Lotto Zesdaagse van Hasselt 2007 – Day 4


Kris was just telling us that oxygen cylinders are banned from track centres under UCI regulations. Marc piped-up; “that’s a pity, I could have done with a cylinder strapped to my back on the first night!” The laughs we have at the Lotto Zesdaagse van Hasselt 2007.

He’s one of the boys now, amazing how much difference a couple of days can make to relationships. It’s wet outside and very warm in here at the Lotto Zesdaagse van Hasselt, there was a big junior and ladies programme in the morning, complete with the usual crashes. Belgian junior track racing is not for those of a nervous disposition.

The first race for us was a points, both Franco and Marc are compaining of “heavy legs”, maybe due to being on the track at 14.00 instead of 20.00.

I asked Patrick Sercu how Marc Hester is, after his crash; he’s fine but isn’t riding tonight. Like Kris says, it’s been a bad season for crashes – we’ve had two in hospital at Hasselt alone.

There’s a bit of glamour been added to proceedings – the Lotto ladies team is being presented. I don’t know how good they are, but they certainly look nice.

Derny time, Marc is up, Franco is napping in the cabin.
