Well that’s a wrap for my Spring Classics season. Balint will be on photo duties this weekend for L-B-L. Time to go home and check it’s still there! I haven’t seen much of it since the season started.
It’s hard to talk about Flèche Wallonne and not talk about the Mur but so much of the surrounding countryside is beautiful and makes for a really challenging course. Especially bits through woodland on a day like today with the sun forcing it’s way through the leaves its a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.
