Gent-Gent-Het Volk-Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Johan’s last big win, Het Volk 2003

At last the real racing begins on Saturday with the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad or if you prefer Gent-Gent. This seems to be title of choice of newspapers that are rivals of the promoting newspaper. I am going for a third win for Phillippe Gilbert.

Checking the list of past winners I see that this is another race in the Flemish Ardennes that Sean Kelly hasn’t won, the other being De ronde. There has though  been an Irish winner, do you know who that was?
