Ride On The E3

Classic favorites: Jan Raas, Hennie Kuiper, Freddy Maertens, Frans Verbeek,
Michel Polentier & Raymond Poulidor.

Classic racing continues tomorrow with E3 Harelbeke. The E3 is named for the highway that connects Harelbeke and Antwerp. And, becoming WorldTour race it attracts the cream of the crop of classic racers. The length is 212km, 17 hills - 5 covered in the Ronde. Contenders will be plenty against the trio favored: Spartacus, Terminator & Tornado Tom. My pick to get his classic season started will be the Terminator.
