Brabantse Pijl 2018

The Pajot Hills Classic has got a make over. Now part of the Flanders Classics series of races the route is a variation of previous year’s races with the omission of the Muur van Geraardsbergen.

Today was an odd day, our teams had decided to skip the race in favour of preparation for the upcoming Ardennes week. At first I was excited about the prospect of not having to make sure I got riders of x, y and z but once the race was underway it made me a little indecisive. When you can shoot anything it’s hard to decide!

Next stop is Amstel Gold on Sunday!
