    Cobbles stolen from Koppenberg

    The organisers of the Tour of Flanders have announced that the route of this Sunday’s race will have to undergo a late change after thieves stole a significant section of cobbles on the fearsome Koppenberg climb. Belgian police have revealed they have received information suggesting that the cobbles were stolen to order and may have already been spirited out of the country. They believe the cobbles are destined for the driveway of a fan of the Belgian Classics.
    Nice job by cyclingnews on the April fools joke.

    Cyclists really need to learn a little Rule #5.

    It had me going and was about to post it here.
    However the new cyclingnews updated app, now optimized for the iPad is no joke. So all you fanboys and and girls, especially those who have an iPad2, start your downloads.

    PS I'm happy the Koppenberg is doing well.

    I think this is another one: http://velonews.competitor.com/2011/...s-cream_166260

    This is the give away, IMO:
    Even Rapha’s newly-signed cyclocross star Jeremy Powers was affected, as his first batch of Rapha-Focus sponsorship gear included a number of the blue-labeled, red-hot chamois cream containers.

    “I kind of liked it, to be honest,” Powers said via text message on Thursday. “On the one hand, it burned like hell, but on the other hand it made me ride like hell. All I could think of was getting home and into the shower – it made the leg pain just disappear. I think this stuff could be the mental advantage I need to put the boots to everyone next fall.”

    This is a win in my book. Good joke for April fools. Pretty creative IMO.
