Tour of Flanders? :eek: What's next, you'll call the Giro "Tour of Italy"? :(
Relax, it's just a forum thread. An English forum thread. Go to the main page - there have been several articles published about the race and every single article title refers to it that way.

Besides, I wound up doing the thread last year too and I referred to it as RVV so give me a break. :p

It's more of a consistency thing, this thread has been titled the Flemish way every time, and even right now one of the sticky threads is titled " Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde" :p

Which has also been titled "3 days of De Panne" in a race thread in the past. Anyway, I've added it just for you :)
Probably better this way anyway - more casual English-speaking cycling fans will learn the translation.

8 million refugees in Australia since 1950s and 7 million can't speak English. Italians who migrated here 60 years ago can say yes or no, I'll call it tour of Italy and I'll call it the tour of Flanders.

Colbrelli to surprise and get a top 10. He was 7th in E3 (an 13th in GW) without having tried the race before.
I was quite sure he would do well even being his first attempt at cobbled Classics. He's a special rider, very tough, a true all-arounder. A shame he lost so many years at pro-conti level.
 
Given their roster, the Steppers should attack relentlessly left right and center from 100k to home. If something sticks, good on them. With that much firepower, be it real or imagined, the chances are that something sticks. If not, too bad, but they weren't gonna beat Sagan and GVA in the finale anyway.
 
You can call it whatever you want it.
Call it
De Ronde van Vlaanderen
De Ronde
Vlaanderens Mooiste
De Vlaamse Hoogmis
The #1 reason Dutch people want to be Flemish ( tho football teams are becoming a close 2nd)

But please drop the Tour of Flanders crap.
