Vanderaerden still a winner

Former Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix winner Eric Vanderaerden (47) yesterday won the first EXQI City Bike race  at the Old Market in Leuven. The Limburger outsprinted Etienne De Wilde and Johan Museeuw. Twenty two old pros participated in the race which lasted an hour. Among them were Nico Mattan, Fons De Wolf, Lucien Van Impe, Roland Liboton, Serge Baguet, Jo Planckaert, Marc Wauters, Ludo Dierckxsens, Frank Harrison and Ward Sels. It was a pilot edition of a new cycling competition which EXQI Sport TV channel will roll out next year. In the period March to June 2010 races will be held in ten different Belgian cities.  There will be separate competitions organized for professional cyclists, former cyclists and emerging talent. The races will be shown live on Belgian TV. I have only one question, who the hell is Frank Harrison?
