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.
