What a beautiful day of bicycle racing in Belgium! The 2012 Dwars Door Vlaanderen (Straight Through Flanders), Seen as one of the first real tests of the form for contenders for the big spring classics, race didn’t disappoint this year. We saw a very in form Omega Pharma team using their strength in numbers to launch Niki Terpstra off the front of the break away on the Oude Kwaremont. He then put his mark on the race on the steep pitch of the Patersberg pulling away from his long break away companion.
This year we saw the race at the start, in Licthervelde, on the Holleweg cobbles, the Knokteberg and finally on the Oude Kwaremont. A great day of chasing some professional bike races in Belgium!
