World Cycling Productions 2008 Omloop Het Volk & Ghent-Wevelgem Videos

DESCRIPTION

Once again the peloton was tested by the high winds and treacherous cobbles of the Kemmelberg in Ghent-Wevelgem. It’s often known as a sprinter’s race, but having the fastest finish won’t guarantee victory. Last year’s event was marred by spectacular crashes that helped German Marcus Burghardt come away with the win. This year’s race was full of attacks and strong breakaways including the group of Filippo Pozzato (Liquigas), Matti Breschel (Team CSC), and Philippe Gilbert (Française des Jeux). Plenty of other teams, most notably CSC, sent out riders looking for the winning move as well, but in the end brilliant team riding by Rabobank and the finishing class of Oscar Freire would rule the day.
