Het Nieuwsblad 2010 is the story of how rookie British squad Sky claimed 2010’s first major Classic – but it¹s much more than that.
It¹s also the story of how veteran nearly-man Juan Antonio Flecha finally netted his first one-day victory in the most spectacular of fashions, with a long-distance solo move. At the same time, it¹s a tale of a nation of defeated top riders, the Belgians, elbowed aside by Flecha and Sky as the Spaniard stakes his claim in the one-day Classics – arguably the most ruthless and hotly disputed of all sporting arenas. Fast-paced and frantic in the best Belgian Classic tradition, with fiercely tactical battles culminating in Flecha¹s finest hour, Het Nieuwsblad 2010 is a minor epic of two-wheeled racing, and a tale of last-minute sporting redemption. Don’t miss it!
