Stolen from Dish's ptp thread:

No change to last year's course and apparently "The final is designed to provide explosive racing, with a duo ascent of the iconic Muur van Geraardsbergen and Bosberg in quick succession."

    So windy for the womens!

    Looking forward to this.
  • It's a bit mucky and murky.
    No break and little or no action to speak of as yet.
    Just the first signs of the peloton waking up....

  • The women's race is being plagued by picture loss.
    Hardly a shot in the last 20 minutes.

    Remaining peloton in pieces. Very fast now.

    Who’s who has made the split.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 57,281 Lives Here
    new leading group, with Van Aert, Stuyven, Naesen, Van Avermaet, Trentin, Benoot and Lampaert among others
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 57,281 Lives Here
    Group 2 making it back to group one after a good 10km chase
  • GvA on the attack
  • twotoebennytwotoebenny Posts: 1,078
    That could well be the move that wins it... decent break
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 57,281 Lives Here
    Rowe parks it. Finished.

    That is why the group got to 15s and is growing again.

    Tough combo of hills coming up.

    Think Stuyven looks good.
  • I hope a few folks behind are waiting for the tough finish, otherwise this race could be over.

    Who’s got the faster finish? Theunissen or Trentin?
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 57,281 Lives Here
    It’s going to be quite dull for the next 45 mins. The group is gone and we have 55km to go
