********************************************


1. CX WORLDS

My #louisville2013foamparty hangover has finally subsided enough to close the book on that glorious weekend. Poor Klaas Vantornout (45/1) almost pulled it off in the men's race, but otherwise the favorites ruled the weekend. Sportifplus had the biggest pay day, putting 1,410 points on Sven Nys (9/5), winning enough to move into 3rd place.


2. OPENING WEEKEND

This weekend represents the spiritual kick-off of the 2013 road season with the first Belgian classics: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne on Sunday. Most of the Rouleur Derby attention is focused on Saturday: Will a Belgian win? Will Boonen podium? Action is starting to pick up and so far Blanco (nee Rabobank) is an early favorite at 7/2, followed closely by Tom Boonen's Omega Pharma-Quick Step squad at 4/1.

Get in on the action before Friday night at http://rouleurderby.com/wager/2013-omloop-het-nieuwsblad/.

Have fun, play well, tell a friend,
