Bethel Spring Series 2009 - Kirche Finishline Vid



Courtesy SOC.

It was a lot closer than I thought. I looked around while I was sprinting and thought there was no one around. I didn't even throw the bike other than a casual bar toss. Goes to show that you really ought to throw the bike at the line for every sprint.

That is indeed a close finish, good thing you didn't sit up (as Zabel, Boonen and probably many others can tell you)
nice win though, apparently you weren't the only one who blew up in the final meters....

Congrats, Aki, that was a really great finish.

Thanks both. Someone pointed out that the race is to the line, not to the turn after it. I know that guys to my left passed me shortly after the line, ditto the right. From now on I'll be throwing my bike at the line with more vigor no matter what's going on around me.
