Ghent- Wevelgem road trip

Yesterday i headed off to Belgium to watch the Ghent-Wevelgem semi-classic
It was an early start!!
The weather didn't look promising as we left Dover on the ferry.

Parked up in Belgium preparing to ride to the Kemmel. I was joined by Russell (back) and Greg (front)

The sign says it all! a nice steep slippery cobbled climb

The leaders on the first ascent of the Kemmelberg

The remains of the peloton on the second assent of the Kemmelberg. The riders looked miserable. It was a hard, wet , windy day in the saddle



Watching the finish in a local bar

Belgian Beer... a must!

Me... steal a race sign? never!

The sun came out as we arrived back at the car... typical

Back on the ferry

A long day
