This is often one of the finest small stage races around. Mont Cassel is always fun, but the Le Portel stage looks great too.

I agree. With all the small climbs, it's impossible to control. I'm away at the weekend, but I'll try and catch the Le Portel stage on Friday

Yep, you can see the track style, a bit like Gaviria at Paris Tours (well no actually completely different, but you see what I meant).
