100e Ronde Van Vlaanderen
The race doesn't require a presentation, the climbs the riders will face during the race (Oude Kwaremont, Koppenberg, Paterberg,..) are true Flemish icons.
The race history doesn't present a true dominator because the record for victories is shared among six men, with three each. Nevertheless only one rider, Fiorenzo Magni won three consecutive victories.
The last rider who won the race in the rainbow jersey was Tom Boonen, will Sagan repeat the feat looking, after the victory of last Sunday in Wevelgem, for an incredible cobbled classics triple?
In case of success on Sunday, one between Boonen and Cancellara can also become the recordman for victories.
Who will be the Lion of Flanders? Excellent bike handling skills are required.
