What a bummer! A regular highlight of my year is a week in Flanders to watch De Ronde, Gent-Wevelgem on the Wednesday and Paris-Roubaix on the Sunday. Three great races in eight days, but no longer.
The UCI has approved a move of G-W to the Sunday a week before Tour of Flanders but maybe all is not lost as I think the Scheldeprijs will move to the vacated Wednesday. I watched the Antwerp semi-classic in 2004 as it was Museeuw’s last race but although it is the oldest race in Flanders it seemed a bit of a non event.
What I can’t figure out is will there be room for the Three days of De Panne and if so where.
