Alexander Kristoff Kemmelberg Gent Wevelgem 2019

Gent Wevelgem 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 men made once ascent from the easier but still steep and cobbled Belvedere side – named after the hotel on that side of the hill – before doing a loop which saw them approach from the...

Paris Roubaix Mud

Paris – Roubaix 2018 Preview – Tips, Contenders, Profile

It’s that time of year for the Hell of the North – Paris Roubaix. Luckily for the riders involved, the weather forecast looks pretty reasonable. A temperature of 15 degrees is good enough to not have to wear the leg/arm warmers and with only the odd shower forecast, they should get away with not having slippy cobbles and a quagmire to deal with. We’ve got...

Tour of Flanders Kapelmuur

Tour of Flanders 2018 Preview – Tips, Contenders, Profile

The crowning point of the Flemish classics is, of course, the Tour of Flanders. It’s also the race that gives an entire region its identity; expect to see copious amounts of yellow Flemish flags being waved during the race. For many it’ll be the end of their Spring Classics season as the races move onto Northern France and the Ardennes so they’ll be keen to make...

Dwars Door Vlaanderen 2018 Preview – Tips, Contenders, Profile

For 2018 Dwars Door Vlaanderen has a new date and a new route. Effectively swapping places with De Panne, Dwars Door now takes place a few days ahead of the larger event of the Tour of Flanders. Cresting some of the same climbs, this positions it as a warm-up event for the big deal on Sunday. It’s because of that, we don’t get to see...

Gent – Wevelgem 2018 Photos

After heading to E3 Harelbeke with my camera the previous Friday, Hannah and I went along to Gent – Wevelgem (both the Men’s and Women’s races) on Sunday with my press pass in tow. We didn’t go to the start this time round, but instead took up station on the Kemmelberg. The Kemmelberg is known as a fearsome hill to cycle up – the pros took...

E3 Harelbeke 2018 Photos

I visited E3 Harelbeke in 2017 and took a load of photos, I found myself back again in 2018 and took some more! I took station at the start on Heerbaan, Harelbeke before moving up onto the Kwaremont area. I just about fit myself on the inside of a tight corner on Drogenbroodstraat, moved onto the Oude Kwaremont and then descended the hill to Oostdorp...
