For its 100th birthday, the Tour of Flanders celebrated a repeat champion, Fabian Cancellara, the second year of its new course, and another Sunday of bringing together millions of cycling fans around Belgium's biggest event.
From the packed start in Brugge and throughout the Flemish countryside, fans lined the route by the thousands eager to catch a glimpse of cycling's warriors.
The Koppenberg, the Oude Kwaremont, the Paterberg - all of the critical points were filled to capacity, each vantage point providing fans with the opportunity to be within touching distance of the competitors.
