This Sunday night, April 6th, we get the next big race of the season, the Ronde van Vlaanderen (Official site here http://www.rondevanvlaanderen.be/en), otherwise known as the Tour of Flanders. The second of the ‘monuments‘, it comes just ahead of the Paris Roubaix, which will be run and won next weekend. The Tour of Flanders takes place every 14th Sunday of the year.
This from the official web site.
The Tour of Flanders was conceived of in 1913 by Karel Van Wijnendaele, co-founder of the sportspaper ‘Sportwereld’. In that era it was customary for publishers of newspapers and magazines to organise cycling races as a way of promoting circulation.
For us Aussies, SBS will be streaming and showing it live on SBS One.
SBS will LIVE stream the Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders) via Cycling Central from 8:20pm AEST on Sunday 6 April and from 0000-0200 (AEST) Monday 7 April on SBS ONE.
