The Flandrian Way...


Pavé hero...
Freddy Maertens is mobbed after he wins his second Gent Wevelgem in 1976!
From: Fabulous World of Cycling.



A big Flandrian weekend of racing is upcoming with the  E3 Prijs Vlaanderen &  Gent Wevelgem. A perfect setting is about to begin with plenty of hopefuls in need of a win. And the  setting is the weather and cobbles. Forecast is for rain & appropriate  cold temperatures for both races. It will be a factor. And more so is the redrawn race of Gent Wevelgem. With 16 leg breaking hill's  over 219km. The notorious Kemmelberg climb with it's steep climb dares the riders' before a flat  finish in Wevelgem. Both races will produce a worthy 'Flemish' winner before the big cobbled monument of the Ronde, on April 4th!
