This morning we will see the second of the great races in our week at the Classics, the semi classic Grote Scheldeprijs. Being midweek between Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix it is expected that the top riders will come out to contest this, the oldest race in Belgium.

The route from Terneuzen to Schoten does the Scheldeprijs name justice,(Schelde is a Belgian river). Terneuzen harbours the is third-largest port in the Netherlands on the Western Scheldt, an estuary of the Scheldt river. This is the access port on the Scheldt river for maritime traffic on its way to Antwerp.

We will go to the start in Terneuzen by bike if weather permits. It’s a bit less than 50km to the start of the race.

After the race we will return to Gent
