Memorial Frank Vandenbroucke

A Belgium Classic.

It was known as the Binche-Tournai-Binche now called Binche-Tournai-Binche Memorial Frank Vandenbroucke. In remembrance to the former classics rider who died last year on Oct. 12th in Senegal. Won by Italian, Elia Viviani it was held on October 5th and at 200 kms a good lead up for Paris-Tours due up this Sunday.

I like the description of lunch, by a FDJ soigneur, with the true and trusty ham sandwich & apple tart.

Next week, I'll have a special post on Frank Vandenbroucke!
