Sunday 26th March Cancellara classic sportive

The following day I rode a 148km sportive celebrating the achievements of Fabian Cancellara’s career as a classics rider.

The course included many famous climbs including:

  • Paterberg
  • Oude Kwaremont
  • Eikenberg

Pictures below. Not my own unfortunately as the group I was with were keen to push on! This was good fun and an excellent endurance ride with over 1400 metres of elevation.

I now have a little break from racing where I will be doing a block of training before some friends come for the Tour of Flanders this weekend. We are riding the Flanders sportive on 1st April and watching the pro’s on the 2nd! Followed by an after party in the finishing town of Oudennarde! This will involve drinking my first beer since arriving in Belgium in early February! It has been too long and am looking forward to a relaxing time with friendly faces!
