I would not mind this as long as Spanish riders can compete in it ( get a grounding for Cobbled races in Belgium ), the route is nice and the financial aspects are taken care of.

Could be a really good testing race for spaniards...

Would love to see this happen at Pro level, but with current cliamte I seriously can't see it, especially in Spain now.

At the moment just a Sportive, but we hope be professional as soon is posible

Get it done before Flecha throws in the towel, at least. :)

It´s gonna be difficult, maybe he could help us when he is retired (Pedro Horrillo is already doing it)

Izaguirre brothers could be the handover to Flecha

Hence the attraction of this style of racing for some of us.

I genuinely don't want to see anyone hurt doing this kind of racing, but the dirt roads are a great "act of god" feature.

Simply, for me dirt roads are god, pure cycling

We want to convert next year GP Canal de Castilla in a more internacional sportive.

¿Who could be the ideal guess for the next year to achieve that?

(this year is Pedro Horrillo)

How about a past winner of Paris Roubaix and Tro Bro Leon (which I think is a better fit as your sister race) - Freddie Guesdon?

Guesdon would be great. A real world class guest of honour. Also, how about Mr. Break Of The Day at Roubaix, José Vicente García Acosta?

Txente García Acosta maybe in two years, next year we are looking for a international star.
