Doesn't seem like this has been mentioned here, but the Driesdage will be a one-day race this year.
Makes sense...

They're still just "copying" the 4 Jours de Dunkerque which hasn't been a 4 day race for years

At least Driesdaagse West-Vlaanderen changed the name when it stopped being a three day race!

But here's an idea for an ad for De Panne:

"Driesdaagse De Panne; so quick they'll do it in one day!"

According to Sporza, Verandas Willems - Charles gets an additional 3rd wildcard for Strade Bianche. Androni and Nippo already in.

Nippo, Aquablue and Direct Energie are invited to le Tour de Suisse.

Yeah it was a good race. Oh well, at least its not completely gone.

WVA getting to ride Strade Bianche is super intriguing.
