Fleche Wallonne Photos 2019

After heading to the Netherlands for Amstel Gold, I stayed on and moved into Belgium for today’s Fleche Wallonne.

The women’s race originally started in the early 2000s with a few editions but then stopped –...

The women’s Tour of Flanders has been taking place since 2004 and takes place again on Sunday 7th April. Its podiums have always been a who’s who of the strongest cyclists in female cycling. 2018 saw Anna Van der Breggen take the crown, finishing just over a minute ahead of Amy Pieters and Annemiek Van Vleuten. 2017 saw more of a smallish bunch sprint finish...

Gent Wevelgem Women 2019 Photos

After spending Friday watching the E3 BinckBank Classic and Saturday riding the Gent-Wevelgem Cyclo, today (Sunday) was spent on the Kemmelberg watching the men and women race Gent-Wevelgem. The women made two ascents from the easier but still steep and cobbled Belvedere side – named after the hotel on that side of the hill – before eventually heading to Wevelgem for the finish line. The...
