Just to stifle any jealousy right off the bat, it's not me that's going.
I am trying to stifle my own jealousy since a workmate who has recently relocated to Brussels has finally given in to my repeated suggestions that the Ronde is not to be missed. However, I've not seen it live myself. Anyone with practical experience have a recommendation for a good place to catch the race? I'm not sure if the Kapelmuur or Koppenberg get too packed for newbies to try and elbow there way in, or if there is another spot closer to Brussels that's better.
I'm figuring that wherever they go it will be a treat -- and I fully plan to take advantage of their hospitality next year.
