de Panne is actually in the Walloonian sector of Belgium, not Flanders, there is a distinct difference, where Walloonian is French, and Flanders is well, Flemish. It's like 2 countries in one, and they don't like each other very much. Tom Boonen, Flandarian. Phillippe Gilbert, Walloonian.elaugier said:What do you guys think of the win of the DC team this week in Flanders (3 days of La Panne in Belgium) ?

My bad. I need to brush up on my geography some more methinks.Monty Dog said:De Panne is actually in North West Belgium, in West Flanders. The Walloon region is predominantly to the south west, south of Brussels including Mons and Charleroi and down towards the Ardennes and certainly nowhere near DePanne which is on the North Sea coast.
