View Full Version : Spring Classics--In Jeopardy?

With the unrest in Belgium, does anyone think this will affect the upcoming race schedule, with huge races scheduled in that country over the next month. I've often wondered how these big races, and the stage races across Europe, can be conducted without seeing disruption, either from unruly fans, or fanatical attacks. I would not want to be the Chief of Security for any of them given the current state of affairs.

I'd think you'd handle it like we did stuff after 9/11 - you postpone stuff scheduled for the next few days but then you get on with life. You heighten security, you re-double intelligence efforts, you realize you can't stop them all and your specific fears COULD be realized, but you don't stop living, either individually or as a nation. Terrorism is a sad fact of life in the West now (as it has been in other parts of the world for many decades). We can't ever protect against it 100%, but we can't stop living out of fear either.
