7: Ruddervoorde (SP)

Type: meadow. miscellaneous obstacles.
Previous podium: Albert, Aernouts, KVT
TV: Vier, 17h

It's a Superprestige race that gets to kick off the season for real. Neerpelt and Kalmthout were fun and all, but they didn't count for anything. Now, things get serious. Ruddervoorde presents us with lots of twistiness up one particular hill. Also, cobbles (whootz). Also, washboards. And bridges. Miscellaneous object of the cyclocross variety, pretty much.
