Picture of the day

Mud and cyclocross make a nice combo. It was the National Championships in most countries of Europe this weekend. The big favorites were doing well with Sven Nys narrowly beating Niels Albert in Belgium, Boom winning in the Netherlands, Heule and Mourey defending in Switzerland and France and Liquigas Enrico Franzoi re-claiming the Italian title in the mud after he could not race last year. Second in Italy was the defending champion and new Cannondale Factory Racing mountain biker Marco Aurelio Fontana. Fontana will be a rider to watch on the mountain bike, he did well at the Olympics and he's still improving, he will also be on a better bike in 2009 so, as Franzoi pointed out, look out for him.
