Welcome to hilly Ronse madness: first bpost leg... LIVE

Balint Hamvas

Hills, (hopefully) rain, and some added excitement with a new format... welcome to Ronse.

Type: hilly
Previous podium: Pauwels, Stybar, Albert
TV: Sporza

It's only the third edition, but this race has already captured the heart of many a cx fan. Or maybe it's just me, that could be the case also. It's raced on the Hotondberg (highest 'mountain' of the province of Oost-Vlaanderen, at a whopping 145 metres). The hill is its main feature, but the race uses it well. Also, when it rains Ronse is hilarious. Plus, there's this awesome ridge. The GVA-leg in Ronse also goes by the name GP Mario De Clercq, after the Sunweb DS. So Pauwels and KVT should do well here. Theoretically.
