Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne would be worthy of its own countdown clock if Het Volk weren't the day before.
Het Volk is sort of the New Hampshire Primary of Cycling. Florida could be the next day and still get half the attention. OK, so K-B-K isn't Florida, but it's a lovely little race in its own right and despite the fewer hills, lower rating and lack of pave, it's just as likely to host a fabulous finish as the Omloop. It's also impossible to preview until Het Volk is over, since it tends to feature the riders who either bailed or failed the day before. But that doesn't stop CN from trying.
