FLANDERS’22: The Hellingen & Kasseien Photo Gallery

De Ronde PeloPics

Flanders Photo Gallery: Sunday gave us the excitement we wanted from the Tour of Flanders. The result was far from expected, right up to the final metres. Mathieu van der Poel was a worthy winner, but what about strongman of the day: Tadej Pogačar? We have put together a collection of the best, or different shots from de Ronde, thanks to the lens of Cor Vos.
