117miles from London to Canterbury.
Het Volk and Kuurne - Brussels - Kuurne on this weekend.
I think Boonen will get Het Vok and I'm going for Roger Hammond to get Kuurne. Though other names include Flippo Pozzato (Liqugas and out to show up Quick Step), Leif Hoste (Predictor-Lotto), Juan Antonio Flecha (Rabobank), defending Het Vok champ Philippe Gilbert (FDJ), Nick Nuyens (Cofidis), Nico Matten (DFL-Cyclingnews-Litespeed, and yes that is a British registed team), and a good outsider would be Stijn Devolder (Discovery).
There is no Hincapie after he broke his hand/wrist in a fall at the Tour of California, he is almost near certain to miss Flanders, Paris-Roubaix as well.
PVP, Flecha and Stewy O'Grady will be in the mix to me thinks...Doubt Boonen will go all out in this race, with some bigger goals just around the corner.

That is dire for a man who supposed to challenge and win classics on the cobblestones.

Boonen saved my hide by winning K-B-K.

Not bad. Should win a race by the end of the season tbh.
Yeah, I saw that when I had a look. Which ended the "shall I just go for the hell of it" thoughts. Category 4 shouldn't be too bad, should it? It's only 1-2kn at 4/5%, that's just a steep road... there's worse than that trying to get out of Exeter in places... though the "after 100km of riding" bit does admittedly make it trickier.
Good downhill finish though, always good to recover from and don't tale too long.
At the Driedaagse van West Vlaanderen (Literally meaning 3 days of West Flanders), there is a smal Belgian team by the name of Babes Only-Villapark Langemeer-Flanders.
