Opening Weekend - Gallery

Opening Weekend - professional cycling's return to its heartland! 

Crisp air, crazy crowds, greasy cobbles and pure carnage racing right off the gun. 

As is tradition, the classics season officially kicked off with Omloop het Nieuwsblad on Saturday and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Sunday. 

It's hard to describe that electrifying atmosphere in words. 
With our favorite shots from this past weekend we're taking you directly to Flanders. Imagine watching the pros race over slippery cobbles, 6°C, drizzling rain, a breeze from south-west and the smell of beer and Belgian fries in the air.

 Welcome to the Classics!
