There are two Belgian cobbled classics happening this weekend: the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Haralbeke on Saturday and the Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday. I don’t have time to write about them both and have decided to write about Gent-Wevelgem. However, here are some link to articles with previews of the E3 course, race, and riders attending.
