Gent Wevelgem, the start of a huge week of cycling in Flanders, culminating in the REALLY big one next weekend.
As the alarm starting blaring this morning it felt way too early: Losing an hour for Summer time and another coming across from the UK yesterday was a struggle! Not much to say about the race today, it was pretty uneventful before the final sprint. Maybe I wasn’t the only one missing the extra time in bed! 😉 A few days now to prepare for Dwars door Vlaanderen and of course, Ronde van Vlaanderen next weekend!
