Why not just call it the Omloop ;)

I don't see anyone calling the Tour Down Under the 'Santos'.

Het Nieuwsblad sounds worse. Literally "The Newspaper".

Oh dear. I guess everything sounds more interesting when it is in a foreign language though. Het Volk is what I will call it!

I usually call it Het Volk as well out of habit. Het Volk means "The People" which, although not great, is better than The Newspaper at least :D

Het Volk :)

Pippo for me!!!
Alberto Contador=Legend!

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!

Then, you may call it "Folk".
Doesn't sound glamorous either.

BMC vs Omega, in my opinion.
But a Sky man at the end.
