Quaregnon - Dour 195.9 km

Aaaaaaahhh, Belgian mid-week racing, how we have missed thee. A typically aggressive race that more often than not ends in some kind of sprint. Finishing straight is on a notoriously tricky false flat drag that punishes anyone who mistimes the sprint even the slightest. See the preview of the course here.

Dour and determined denizen of the day: Michael van Staeyen

Perhaps time for vam Staeyen and Topsport to score a really big win? The little dude does well on the uphill drag sprints and the team are in a good groove right now it seems.
