We are only 1 week away from the BEST race of the year, and a week later the 2nd best race of the year.
Next weekend is the Tour of Flanders or Ronde Van Vlaanderen if you are Dutch or Belgian. Cobbles and climbs. The Flanders region of Belgium seems to have the absolute best race fans of any part of the world. I know that I wait the whole year for the Tour of Flanders.
The weekend after that is Paris Roubaix. That is not in Belgium, but it is pretty close. Roubaix is right on the border, and as a result is sort of an adopted Belgian race. There is a huge amount of history with Paris Roubaix. Back in the day, all the big favorites from the summer races would show up and race hard for Paris Roubaix. Hinault, Sean Kelly, Eddy Merckx etc...
I feel like the race got its name from this movie.
Set up your trainer, or get a Belgian ale and sit back and watch Eddy Merckx take on a Sunday In Hell!
