I have nothing against Dutch CX  :-*  It's just that I know Flanders is the "heartland" - but happy to stray over the border!

This will be something to plan for next winter.

(the other likely option is a more pedestrian tourist trip - in which case I have more of Netherlands still to see than Flanders ... )

First of all you're right... The Flemish events are more enjoyable, but as has been pointed out you won't be disappointed at Hoogerheide or valkenburg in NL which are both just over the border and are usually world cup events with a top class field. At the moment it's a bit dull as vd poel usually wins if he turns up.

When the Belgian /  Dutch Randonneur calender is published just check it against the 'veldrit' calendar at       https://www.veldritkrant.be/kalender    You can usually see which town or location it is.

Is anyone riding Herentals tomorrow?
The road works around the start place seem to be a bit messy, but I plan on being there.
I'll be riding my new blue Thorn Mercury Rohloff  :)

The Maastricht event is full for tomorrow, so if anyone hasn't decided yet, there's space in Herentals but not in Maastricht.
