We’re in the enormous beer tent at the finish area of this year’s Ronde van Vlaanderen. One of the guys at the next table see our press vests and walks over to us.
”Hey, take a photo of us. It will be the best photo you have taken at the race this year”, he asks happily.
The amount of beer on their table is somewhat…impressive, so we ask them how many beers they have bought.
Calculating on his fingers one of them replies ”first we bought forty. Then 60. And then 60”.
I ask him how many they are in the group sharing those beers.
”Ten!” he replies, smiling mischievously.
