It’s funny when the weather plays deja-vu on you – and that’s exactly what happened today. The weather was identical to last year’s race, a bit of cold and heavy raining alternated warm sunshine and blue skies.
That wasn’t the only thing that caused deja-vu: after an exciting race, it all came down to Sven Nys and Niels Albert, they had to duke it out, just like last year and it was Nys again, who crossed the line first.
Next week will be a bit quieter, just one race on Sunday, Hamme-Zogge, but then comes one of the highlights of the season, at least for me: Asper-Gavere, my favourite race.
Oh, and I would like to congratulate to Helen Wyman and Nikki Harris for finishing first and second at the European Champs today – well done!
