Nice tough climb through residential area with very good road surface.
I was immediately reminded of Stijn Devolder who attacked here when he won the Ronde.

Mooie pittige klim door woonwijk met heel goed wegdek.
Moest meteen aan Stijn Devolder denken die hier demarreerde bij zijn overwinning in de Ronde.

I like this climb. Good asphalt and still a pretty steep gradient, always a good gauge to see how good the legs are.

Ik hou wel van deze klim. Goede asfvalt en toch een vrij pittig stijginspercentage, altijd een goede waardemeter om te zien hoe goed te benen zijn.

The Valkenberg is tough, but easy to do.
In former Tour of Flanders is part of the triptych Berendries - Valkenberg - Ten Bosse.
The Valkenberg is often there, but never determined the course. A bit like the Kluisberg so ...

De Valkenberg is pittig, maar goed te doen.
In vroegere Ronde van Vlaanderen maakt het deel uit van het drieluik Berendries - Valkenberg - Ten Bosse.
De Valkenberg is er vaak bij, maar bepaald nooit de koers. Een beetje zoals de Kluisberg dus...

Short but steep slope.
Also the street before the slope, the Kerkhofstraat, and the "false flat piece" afterwards till the crossing with the Twaalfbunderstraat slope.
Quite some traffic passing by.
Nice to climb because the slope often occurs in the RVV.

Korte, toch wel steile helling.
Ook de straat voor de helling, de Kerkhofstraat, en het "vals platstuk" nadien tot het kruispunt met de Twaalfbunderstraat hellen.
Toch redelijk wat verkeer dat passeert.
Mooi om op te klimmen omdat de helling vaak voorkomt in de RVV.
