Default Sorry for posting this here

Is there a 3-daagse van West-vlaanderen thread somewhere that has just disappeared or should we create one? Starts today. Marko Kump to dominate

EDIT: Nevermind

I'm confused! I always got the impression that the bans for all three of them ended March 1st.

This article seems to be indicating just that.

Oh... so it was that Velonews article that had made a mistake?
Just... everywhere I've read it seems to be that their bans where for the same period...
