Bring on the Cobbles!!!
For many people the Omloop marks the beginning of the season. In conjunction with the slightly less prestigious Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, we have a pretty fun weekend of racing. Tough weather, tough cyclists and tough courses. And of course, how could we forget...COBBLES!
The Omloop has been one of my favorite races since my boy Juan Antonio Fletcha won it back in 2010. It got me into the classics and gave us this sweet poster:
|Van der Fletcha|
|Bitch, it's curtains|
Who's looking good this year?
Well, look forward to my preview, but please, feel free to add your own thoughts in the mean time.
|Yeah, sometimes it gets cancelled due|
to snow, not something I would advertise
I mean there are cobbles, but really this is a classic for the sprinters. Not that that is all bad. We did get this sweet poster out of the deal:
Apparently the course is guarded by some sort of Flandrian Ogre. I mean, that's something to watch for.
Who are the favorites?
