Belgium – Day Zero

“Did racing in Belgium meet your expectations?”

“Well…”

Driving through northern France and into southern Belgium it’s clear how the noted style of Belgium racing has, at it’s heart, the geography and terrain of the region. The unbroken views across fields, the scattered trees and the exposed, unbroken horizon all lend their assitance in creating a myth of hardcore, wind affected bike racing. Last night’s clear blue skies and a glorious red sunset did not fool me: reputations in cycling are hard won and not easily relinquished.
