Only half of my prediction was correct. Niels Albert took the win and Stybar was second while King Nys was left third. The weather looked to be getting greasier with the rain every lap and all the favorites had minor crashes in first couple of laps. Stybar might have escaped the crashes, or at least I didn't see him crashing. Once Albert got to the front, he was pretty much gone even if it looked that Stybar might get back to him. Stybar is looking strong though and he might be able to take the victory in Nommay world cup next weekend. Weather forecast shows lots of rain for this week in Nommay so it may very well be a mud bath that we missed in Koppenberg.
