Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.

If I can’t have cobbles anymore, that’s fine, I will just have to settle for the dirt farm tracks of one of my favorite races of the year, Tro-Bro Léon. We talked for a long time about whether it was best to shoot Amstel over TBL - on a professional level, yes, most likely. In the end though, it was hard not to give the nod to a race we truly love. This one is special - can’t wait for Sunday.

"Even saw the lights if the Goodyear Blimp and it read Spartacus is a pimp" Our newest design was inspired by Fabian’s dominance of cobbled classics mixed w/ a classic 90 rap song. It came to me after a post RVV ride in Flanders and talking 90s Rap. available now at hbstache.com

" Walter Godefroot is a stud.Paris-Roubaix 1969: Is he riding on the shoulder of the road, away from the pave? No, “The Bulldog of Flanders” is riding right down the middle giving them a good spanking. Is he wearing gloves on what is one of the most brutal days of racing? No, he didn’t seem to ever wear gloves. Why should Paris-Roubaix be an exception? Is he off the back? No, quite the opposite. See that group of chasers off in the distance in the upper left? The 5 riders in hot pursuit included three big names: Eddy Merckx, Felice Gimondi and Roger De Vlaeminck. Even those guys could not pull back Godefroot that day. Walter rode everyone into the ground and finished alone at the Roubaix Velodrome 2 minutes 39 seconds ahead of the final chase group of four riders. Merckx ended up 2nd on the day, Gimondi 4th, and RDV 5th.I had read and heard several explanations as to why Godefroot rode without gloves. A few year back I asked Walter about why he chose not to wear gloves, particularly at races like Roubaix. His response was quite simple: he could feel the road surface better without gloves. My next question was to ask if after using that strategy over so many years as a pro, did he have any functioning nerves remaining in either of his hands? He just gave me a smile and chuckled.I am acquainted with Walter only on a very casual basis. Nevertheless, any time he and I are ever in the same area, be it at a race or a social gathering, he will always make the effort to come over and say hello. What a prince of a guy! “
