UCI video - women's Ronde van Vlaanderen World Cup

It's always one of the most anticipated races of the year, and always a huge spectacle - and for the women, it's extra-special. The Ronde van Vlaanderen, the Tour of Flanders, brings tons of cheering spectators, and a very Belgian flavour to the third round of the Road World Cup. If you picked a member of the peloton at random and asked her which race she'd like to win, apart from the Worlds or Olympics, she's likely to be dreaming of Flanders...

Here's the 26-minute video highlights from the UCI, commentated by Rochelle Gilmore and Ant McCrossan, with interviews with Emma Johansson and Lizzie Armitstead before the race, and a section in the middle talking to the Wiggle Honda mechanic abut preparing bikes for a race like this.

If you want more videos from different perspectives, with links to photos, rider blogs and of course, the results, check out the RvV post-race thread.
