Me in Liege-Bastogne-Liege

So this morning I went to see the start of Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Of course not really the start but the riders from our favourite Basque team, Euskaltel. When we arrived, we saw that the square was once again surrounded by fences. Luckily I had asked Jesus Aizkorbe from Euskaltel's press office for a VIP-pass. He told me that he would say it to Gorka Gerrikagoitia. When I asked him about him he didn't really seem to know anything of it but I showed him the mail and we got the VIP-pass of Jon Carabayeda.

We have met all the riders from Euskaltel, I got all their autographs and my "photographer" took like a 150 pictures. It was a good mornign ! I also bought a little Euskaltel bus because they didn't have any shirts from our team :( Here are some pics :

That's great! Did you also talk with them?

Strange that they did not have team wear though. Well, there will not be too much Euskaltelfans in the northern part of Europe ;)

None of the riders & staff speaks English so the conversations are like : Vamos & Good luck :p

Yeah I hate the fact that they had shirts from Bouygues & Barloworld but not from Euskaltel :x

I thought you are (or was :D) learning Euskara?

Just to let you know, www.derondeshop.be has Euskaltelteamwear 2008. Dunno if it is only an internet shop though. And it is not cheap...

No i quit with it after I met some other Euskaltel fans in Bruges and they couldn't speak Basque theirselves, so I thought I would be more with spanish :p

Yeah I know that site, just have to convince my parents :p
