They were so lucky this year to have sunshine the entire weekend. This video is much more typical of the weather in Belgium...at any time of the year!! This is the bicycle course. I believe the Aussie did this route the day before! Bravo Mick.
"The Tour of Flanders (Dutch: Ronde van Vlaanderen, French: Tour des Flandres) is a Flanders Classics road cycling race held in Belgium every spring, a week before the Paris–Roubaix road race. It is part of the UCI World Tour and one of the so-called monuments of the European professional calendar. It is the most important cycling race in Flanders. Its nickname is Vlaanderens mooiste (Dutch for "Flanders' finest")."
See the screen behind the little family? They were situated where you could see the racers progress. Things really erupted when they did their split second pass-by.
It was so nice that the little families could hook up. Michael was delighted to be able to talk biking! I think he and Zoë plan to attend all the Tour de France races they can.
