Oscar Gatto, "I didn't need the clothes"

With inclement weather in Italy for Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-Sanremo, and now the races in Belgium, cycling related websites have been abuzz with articles about inclement weather jackets, clothing, and related products.

So, here we had Oscar Gatto (Vini Fantini-Selle Italia) winning Dwars door Vlaanderen in short sleeves and shorts with everyone else bundled up. "The cold was no problem for me," said Gatto. "If you race then you don't feel the cold and in the finale we were going flat out. I didn't need the clothes."

Gatto became the first Italian to win this Flemish semi-classic.
