lolwut? you do realize belgium has been providing some of the best racing in the history of cycling for over 100 years don't you?
Im from Sheffield but live in Holland and ride a lot in Belgium. Actually Yorkshire and Belgium can provide very similar topography. Yorkshire is a bit more mixed and a lot less tree lined but ofr hills and steepness they are very similar. Having said that therei s little in Belgium that compares to a hill like Holmemoss for length and average gradient.
So will this tour have less or more tt than the pathetic 50k in 2011.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago
