Yesterday was yet another win for Sven Nys. Can someone get past him today?
18: Asper-Gavere (SP)
Type: meadow. forest.
Previous podium: Pauwels, Meeusen, Stybar
It's another fast race, this one, so we're best left wishing for rain. If it rains (see video, 2009) it's great as all rainy races are. Because the fastness is mostly due to there being lots of asphalted and hardened roads, but in the forest there are hills and twisty bits which are pretty fun. There's one long fast downhill too, which, again, is cooler when it rains. Nearly all cx-things are, really.
