Openingsklassieker 2013 Preview: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad & Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

But enough of that.


The 2012 edition saw three things:

  1. Boom and Boonen battling on the “Boonenberg” with de Nederlander getting the worst of it.
  2. Sep Vanmarcke making his marcke.
  3. The genesis of #heightdoping.
