A race around a military castle and orchards, that's a nice combo. And the race is pretty fun too, with twisty bits snaking through the forest. In the words of Klaas Vantornout: "Gavere doesn’t lie. It’s an honest race – technical, hard, pure cyclocross." If you're having a bad day, you won't win in Gavere. If you can't master cx technique, you won't win in Gavere. Niels Albert made a veritable doodsmak on the big descent in this race during recon in 2008, and ruptured his spleen.
