I've just been on a ride here in Antwerp province, and the weather is very nice, but the wind is really noticeable. If it is windy here, relatively far from the coast, it must be worse in the race (and De Moeren). SW-direction, so the final is mostly tailwind.
Done, but it's quicker to @ me cause then it'll be the first thing I see when I log in in case I forget. Now it was the most recent post so I didn't go through the PRR main menu and didn't realise it wasn't stickied until later.
It's really frustrating to have no coverage at all; one of the greatest and memorable races on the calendar + they could predict there would be full action now with echelons, and they still don't broadcast the whole shebang.
I hope the race will still be as exciting once they broadcast around 1-1.30 C.E.T.
