This past Sunday in Belgium saw the fourth edition of the Skoda Challenge Geraardsbergen, which had been absent from the calendar for the past two seasons due to the global pandemic.
One of the key features of the race is the cobbles and climb of the Muur van Geraardsbergen, one of the iconic points of Ronde van Vlaanderen – the Tour of Flanders – one of the five Monuments of professional one-day cycling.
Challenge Family are clearly cycling fans too, as one of their new races announced recently, Challenge San Remo on September 25, will include the descent from another Monument, Milan-San Remo.
There were Belgian athletes on the home podium again this year, but it was a case of silver linings, with the race victories going to Antony Costes (FRA) and Diede Diederiks (NED).
In addition to that report from Sunday, we can now bring you an ‘in pictures’ reflection of the race, thanks once again to regular TRI247 contributor, José Luis Hourcade (www.joseluishourcade.com), who was on-site to record the action.
