Tour of Flanders

The Ronde takes the riders over many of the famous climbs that the riders have already graced in some of the early-season Belgian races. This monument on the cycling calendar is a major spring target for many of the pro’s and these recent preceding races have acted as a warm up for this prestigious Flemish race. This world renowned race has a huge following and attracts amateur riders from all around with its cyclo-sportive event. This celebration of Belgian cycling never fails to throw up some fantastic action and this year will see another eagerly anticipated edition. Taking in the Molenberg, Oude Kwaremont, Koppenberg, Taaienberg, Eikenberg and the infamous Muur we’ll be treated to an exciting route, which keeps to tradition and is set to put the riders through a tough day in the saddle over a number of steep, cobbled bergs.

Tom Boonen has been looking strong recently and was just pipped to the post by Filippo Pozatto in the recent E3 Prijs Vlaanderen so will be out for revenge in the Ronde Van Vlaanderen, but we can’t discount Heinrich Haussler of the newly formed Cervelo TestTeam who has put in some storming rides this season but not yet clinched the deal to win. All three will be hungry for this, in addition to an equally classy field who will no doubt keep the favourites on their toes.
