Belgium... Blue!

The new blue Flandrian star...
Chris Sutton!

I would not have picked Chris Sutton to win today's dry Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne.

Other prominent riders' figured in my prediction. I even thought the mighty Flecha to win Saturday's Omloop. He, of course, finished in a heart breaking second. Nevertheless, the Arrow and Boasson Hagen forced the pace to propel Sutton for a huge win.

Yauheni Hutarovich hung in dearly to catch second right in front of Andre Greipel (third) and a fast charging Tyler Farrar (fourth).

You have to give it to the black & blues for having a very successful Belgian weekend. A perfect lead out won the race for Sky. There's no telling what else they can do for an encore!
