It’s that time of the season that cycling fanatics have been waiting for. The Ronde van Vlaanderen takes place this Sunday, 5th April. Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung are excited and eager to be participating in this 2nd Monument of the year, Belgium’s most prized sporting event. 

The 265km course will again include 19 Hellingens, including the famed Koppenberg and 2 ascents of the infamous Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg climbs. With a number of separate cobble sections thrown in for good measure as well as all of the worlds best classics riders starting in peak condition, we are all set for an exciting spectacle.

Unfortunately Edvald Boasson Hagen will not take to the start for MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung after breaking his collarbone at the Gent-Wevelgem but the 8 gladiators chosen to battle it out on Sunday will be lead by Gerald Ciolek. Complementing the team will be Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Tyler Farrar, Matt Goss, Youcef Reguigui, Jay Thomson, Matt Brammeier and Andy Stauff.

Two of the other most notable absentees from the race will be past champions Fabian Cancellara and Tom Boonen. With both riders out due to injury, the race has been blown wide open. The Tour of Flanders will be broadcast live for African supporters by SuperSport once again so you won’t miss a beat. Coverage starts at 12:10 on SS2 so be sure to tune in to show your support for MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung.

Tyler Farrar – Rider

The Tour of Flanders is probably my favourite race in the whole world and it is the ultimate Flemish classic. It has everything in it, cobblestones, the short steep climbs, small roads and sometimes bad weather. It is pity we will be missing Eddy tomorrow but we have a strong team still and we are looking forward to a great race.

I love this race. Everything about it is awesome, the fans here in Belgium are cycling mad and it should be another great day to be on the bike tomorrow. As a team we definitely have a goal in mind for this race and we will ride towards it.
