Here come the Hellingen

At last, from the darkness of winter comes the bright light of a new racing season. Yes, there have been skirmishes in deserts, in southern Europe. and a few clashes down under but this Saturday marks the start of the season proper with the 73rd running of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, and our first chance to see the peloton do battle up the infamous Hellingen. The small, viciously steep and predominantly cobbled climbs that punctuate the Flanders landscape are as famous as the riders who do battle on them and known to cyclists the whole world over. They are the building blocks, the beating heart of these mighty races and like the mountains of the grand tours they are also there for us all to ride
