Van Petegem, Museeuw -- for some reason I've never heard these guys speak before, and given their style and performances on the bike I thought they would have some super-booming/gravelly voice of hellspawn. But really they sound like C+ compilers discussing slashdot nerdery.

Kind of sad. I'm muting from now on.

Learning Belgian is almost as hard as learning Canadian.

'06 P-R is on my TV right now. Van Petegam, though "long in the tooth", rawks it.

Flemish is a softer form of Dutch.
Much harder to understand, but without all the phlegm!
