Bike Talk

40km this a.m around Gravelly Beach, Rosevears, Exeter. Love cycling in the Tamar Valley in Autumn.
This Sunday night (April 3) sees another of cyclings 5 monuments, a feature race of Europes Spring classics, The Tour of Flanders (also known as the Ronde van Vlaanderen) from Belgium. The Tour of Flanders was conceived in 1913 and is famous for its short steep cobbled sections. This years favourite is last years winner and 2 time Paris Roubaix winner, Fabian Cancellara. Watch out for Launceston's Matt Goss who has just come off a win in the first of this years monuments, The Milan-San Remo.
You can catch the Tour of Flanders this Sunday night from 9.30 on Eurosport or 10.30 on SBS.
