Title: RVV - no more Muur of Geraardsbergen & Bosberg
Post by: Domestique on September 18, 2011, 09:39:12 am
This seems an odd move. The Muur and Bosberg will now be missing from the decapitated Ronde Van Vlaanderen.

Having stood at the top of the Muur and savoured the fantastic atmosphere there, I think Nicole Cook was world champion when we went, then seeing the mens race come through the whole place goes mental.

He couldn't say Roubaix without Arenberg because that has already happened in the last decade, without much affect on the racing.
