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!"

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

WVA getting to ride Strade Bianche is super intriguing.
