Le Samyn Classic: Gruesome Klasseien

Fine looking poster, too.

Nicely placed mid-week (tomorrow that is) is the semi-classic, Le Samyn. For our viewing pleasure the cobbles will be tackled this time in Walloon region of Belgium - Quaregnon to Dour. 200kms for the men and 112kms for the women. I'm looking forward to watching this one. It's the 46th edition and it will be arduous - 13 sectors of pave, 13 kms in total. This is an important race for many as a bridge to Saturday's Strade Bianche. 

Start list here.
