Sportives in Benelux
edited June 2011
See lots of rides all through Euope but don't seem to see many in Belguim/Netherlands or Luxemburg. Anyone got any suggestions of what are good events from here till the end of Summer?
Not much help for this year but the Amstel Gold sportive in april was fantastic. Wouldn't be surprised if most of the big sportives in the area coincided with the spring classics season.

I rode Tour of Flanders and that was great. Couldn't get on the Amstel gold due to lack of tickets but riding the course in a few weeks. Need a target to keep me and my non racing buddies motivated...
This might whet your appetite:

these do quite a few...
I have done a few with them in the past, they are good to a certain standard. I get a little annoyed that there is no timing chips and standards.
But I will be doing Dam tot Dam in September.

Not much use to you this year but I did Tilff-Bastogne-Tilff a couple of weeks ago - my first ever sportive and it was an amazing experience. Superb organisation, especially after reading about the Dragon Ride charade and only £15 Euros. The price included very good feed/drink stops.
Summer: Kuota Kebel
Winter: GT Series3
