Was just checking the schedule. Looks like it might just be a long weekend in 2014, to close to kids spring break for a 10 day trip
Okay, the VIP on the Kwaremont (flandersclassics.com) was really fun, very cool and had some draw backs. I won't be doing it this year. You should do it once, I've done it twice and that is enough.
The food... Plentiful, lots of varieties including pretty damned good sushi.
The beer (got smashed on Charles Quint) did not suck.
Watching the race on live feeds as it unfolds.
Hanging out at the bar.. Chit chatting with Roger Hammond didn't suck either.
Lots of VIP's in the VIP tent
We paid 270 euros per. It will be more this year.
The parking is a complete disaster.
Don't bother with trying to see the start in Bruges if you are going to the VIP. You will not have enough time to get to the Kwaremont without spending a couple of painful hours in a traffic cluster F.
When you go outside to see the boys fly up the Kwaremont you realize you are 20 people deep and the fence line is on about a 30' set back. Unless you are real tall you won't see ****.
But, there's something to be said for being there
. Electricity is in the air.
