Capital City Cycles

Ardennes!!!

Posted in Events, fixed gear, Rides, Road by capitalcitycycles on April 15, 2011

So far we’ve had a great classics season. Milan San-Remo, Flanders and Roubaix were all nail biters and awesome to watch. But as we move further into the spring, the racing continues. The Ardennes classics are upon us, starting with the Amstel Gold race on Sunday.
The Ardennes’ classics are hillier than other classics and this makes for really interesting races often won by strongmen that can still climb, such as Phillippe Gilbert (last years winner of Amstel Gold) Cadel Evans, Alexander Vinocourov and Alehandro Valverde just to name a few. Who knows who’ll win on Sunday, but surely it’ll be a great race. We’ll probably go for a ride on Sunday and then watch the race at the shop. Expect a bit of a hilly ride but as always, the pace will be pretty relaxed.
