Ronde van Vlaanderen – men’s gallery, by Wei Yuet Wong

Yep, it’s the bike race that brings everyone together. The first Sunday of April lured people from far and wide to Flemish roadsides to watch as those in de Ronde raced on bike… we have numerous contributors in attendance a the Classics every year and, in 2014, one is supplying a series of galleries showcasing the contests themselves as well as other visions he sees during the course of the competition.

Here is Wei Yuet Wong’s perspective of the men’s race in de Ronde van Vlaanderen from Sunday 6 April… click the shot of Fabian Cancellara (below) to begin the slideshow.
