2011 Ronde van Vlaanderen route & more photos...

The route and profile of the 2011 Ronde van Vlaanderen

Bart - a superb tour driver/guide and excellent host: www.go4cycling.com

 Mark Cavendish powering through the feed-zone just after the descent from the Koppenberg

 post Koppenberg feed-zone. In the photo: George Hincapie, Nick Nuyens, et al.

 Geriant Thomas in the post Koppenberg feed-zone, riding his way to 10th place... a superb effort.

 The descent from the Koppenberg - most riders looked to be in pain several minutes later!

 Thanks to www.go4cycling.com we also got to see some the women's Tour of Flanders.

A lucky photo... Nick Nuyens (eventual winner) and Stijn Devloder (Belgium Champ')... and is that Cav?

 Ouch! (feed-zone, after the Koppenberg)

 The cobbles of Flanders - wonderful.

No, you can't have a musette or bidon!

 Gerardsbergen - town of the Muur. (I saw this a lot!)

The excellent www.go4cycling team: Bart, Nico and Pieter. These guys know every road, every cobble and, it seems, every Belgium cycling rider and legend.
