#CRTpink on the cobbles – Ronde van Vlaanderen 2017
It all started at the St Pancras Euro Despatch office, which offers a convenient service for transporting large goods. And if you are lucky you may bump into some long distance bike tourers who will share some cool endurance stories with you.

We briefly became friends with the desk attendants...
Evening before the event – Refuelling + getting the bikes ready
It was raining so much we wondered if they were going to delay the start

Bring it home!
We had a stunner of a day, in many ways unforgettable. With the first 2 hours in uninterrupted rain, punctures and people falling just in front of us, we really wondered how we could endure for ~250km in those conditions.
But no cobblestone, wind or mud could prevent us from riding and finishing such an historic route, pushing on very same ascents ("muurs") which made and continue to make the history of cycling.
