Wat mij betreft doet deze ronde zijn naam eer aan. Gereden bij stralend weer en 26 graden. Het was echt genieten, vooral de eerste 120 km. Daarna ging het wel pijn doen ????

Omdat we gestart waren in Oudenaarde kregen we nog enkele van de zwaarste bergen als toetje met de Kwaremont, Paterberg en Koppenberg. Op die laatste reed ik echt van kassei naar kassei. Maar zo is het wel een mooie finale.

De route klopte prima.
