We've nearly reached the end of the Northern Classics for another year with La Doyenne, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the crescendo before that other fever sweeps the cycling world, that of the Grand Tours.
So far, it's been a season for the Belgians. Tom Boonen (Quick Step) won Gent-Wevelgem; Nick Nuyens (Saxo Bank-SunGard) was brilliant in winning the Tour of Flanders; Johan Van Summeren (Garmin-Cervelo) posted a memorable escape at Paris-Roubaix; and then there was Philippe Gilbert.
