If it happens this will be a Ronde to remember for the ages…

When my phone pinged with an update from Flanders Classics this afternoon I was expecting more bad news.

But contrary to that belief it was the publishing of a new set of dates with both Gent-Wevelgem and the Tour of Flanders pencilled in for mid-October.

Now there is a hell of a lot of water to pass under a hell of a lot of bridges before we get to these dates but its something to focus on and look forward to in the coming weeks.

I hope with every part of me that we will see these classics on these dates.

10th October – Amstel Gold Race

18th October – Tour of Flanders

Just imagine that for a moment. A autumnal journey through the bergs and the cobbles with that cold wind coming in off the North Sea and post harvest time mud splattered farm tracks.

I am chilling a Leffe in readiness.
