Friday’s back page in Metro, the free newspaper for commuters. Says it all really.
Translation “A frozen spring for Belgian cycling”. The article says it is a barren time after two years when Tom Boonen and Philippe Gilbert delivered wins in the classics for the host nation in these major races.
Last chance today in Liege Bastogne Liege, the oldest of “The Monuments” at the end of the Ardennes week which has included Amstel Gold, Fleche Wallonne and now Liege Bastogne Liege.
I have still got my Fleche Wallonne photos to post but today we are off for a day’s sightseeing in the Ardennes and then up to one of the final climbs to join the crowds.
Belgium is waiting!
