Technically there’s no need to highlight this hat to help shine a light or boost sales for an internet friend, ‘cuz the hat’s already sold out. However, it’s so ridiculously hot that I have to post *something* on it.

One man sweatshop, Gary Rothera of Rothera Cycling threw together a cycling cap to celebrate one of cycling’s great monuments, de Ronde van Vlaanderen.

Obviously, I love the België tricolor, but the other two elements make this a truly unique hat—big assed Futura Obliques getting the point across nice and clear on one side, with the legendary Muur on the other. I can’t stop looking at this thing. Unfortunately I suck and I missed the window, but I love that these exist, regardless.

Check out the Ronde van Vlaanderen cap on, as well as the rest of his balleur hats.

    I’d trade a nut for this hat – missed the window too. Pet peeve with anyone selling caps… show the UNDERSIDE of the brim. What you put there (or don’t) is critical…
