On Sunday we will be watching the Covid-19 re-scheduled De Ronde van Vlaanderen, and thank god and the Belgian government for that. So, we have picked some of the best photos from the thousands in the Cor Vos Flanders archive - Retro Photo Gallery.
De Ronde van Vlaanderen is the 'Real' World championships, if you are a Flemish bike fan. The Tour of Flanders will be more of a slow fuse, but when the peloton hits those cobbled climbs round Oudenaarde... Watch for the fireworks! Ed Hood looks at the history, course and who's hot for Sunday.
DS Interview: As Ed Hood was trying not to get too disappointed about the cancelation of De Ronde van Vlaanderen this Sunday, he thought he should talk to a real Flandrien. A born and bred man of the cobbles - Wilfried Peeters, successful rider and top Directeur Sportif.
Mar 16, 2020 - Coronavirus is the Top Story as the UCI stops racing. The final stages of Paris-Nice with video action. Giro postponed, Redlands cancelled. Benoot happy, UAE ends quarantine, Nieuwenhuis extends, Ten Dam joins Specialized, Woods breaks femur and Sinkeldam talks quarantine.
Ed's Opinion: Twelve stages down and nine to go in the 2019 Giro d'Italia before the finish in Verona, so time for Ed to have a 'Giro Rant'. But it's not just the Italian Grand Tour that receives our scribes wrath: Dopers, race juries and the printed press, both British and Flemish, are all in the firing line. Not to worry, the 2020 Flanders Classics dates are out.
