Estonia road racers Tanel Kangert, Rein Taaramae, and Grete Treier in Beijing 2008 Olympics

Estonia male cyclists a bit pokey

Estonia’s male cyclists didn’t fare too well in the Bicycle Road Race of the 2008 Olympics. Tanel Kangert finished 69th, 13 minutes behind the leader. Rein Taaramae landed 48th, 7 minutes behind.

Whoa! 69th? Is that even possible? How many road racers are there? Actually, there are 90. And 60 didn’t even finish! So there’s 150 bicyclists. Sheesh! What a huge race this is! So 48th out of 150 is actually pretty good. Good job, Taaramae! And Tanel, you need to pick it up a bit. 😉
