I was just at the La Gazzetto dello Sport site. Aldo Sassi, coach of Ivan Basso and Cadel Evans, has posted part one of a training plan for the 2011 amateur version of the Tour Of Flanders. It goes off the day before the pro race, and you can ride the entire course or one of two shorter distances.

I just wanted to put it out there in case there's interest in the event, or just checking out the training plan.

To get a good workout, however, keep in mind the law of three, never more than 3 workouts in a row, never less than 3 workouts per week. Good job "

It's an absolutely awesome event. Very well organized and a helluva lot of fun. Plus Belgium is just bitchin'.

I plan on traveling that area at that time but won't be able to pack a bike. Anyone able to recommend a rental shop there? If the snow leaves early like this year I should be able to get enough kms in to pull off the 140 distance. On a side note, I'll be traveling with my brothers who know nothing about cycling but plenty about beer. Any recommendations about where to suggest they go to watch this most awesome introduction to pro cycling and have an equally awesome introduction to Belgian ales? I thought we had a thread on watching this event but couldn't find it.

Thanks for the link to the training plan.

Google Ronny Assez. He owns a bike shop in Oudenarde. He's cool as the other side of the pillow.

If I had just ridden 260km, I would want a few beers as well.

EDDY!!

Surprisingly undereported fact was Merckx attacking out of the Boonen group nearly catching Cancellara before flatting out of the race on the Carrefour d'labre. He was flying.
