It is early when we make our way to Oudenaarde. 

As the clouds break, the rain drizzles down the car window, when the red light stops the motion of the car, the gusts of wind
greets you with a good morning.

The Flandrien weather,

the experience of riding in it is hard to put to words. 

Whilst it makes a small group of riders thrive, 

it makes most shiver.

Running to the finish

We can hear the radio broadcasting in the distance
The dutch storm is coming
