The 2012 Tour of Flanders is already one of the most talked about editions in the long and distinguished history of the race. Significant changes to the route for this year have caused controversy, with riders and fans reacting with consternation to the removal of the Muur van Geraardsbergen from the parcours.
Nevertheless the race will retain its status as one of the most loved and eagerly anticipated of the season and remains Belgium’s premier Monument. The Tour of Flanders traditionally attracts the best riders in the world to the start line, but riders of other nationalities are always fighting the home team here. The race is a national emblem in Belgium and the host country’s riders have won almost seven times more titles here than any other nation. Tom Boonen, who has been in fine early season form, is sure to make a bold bid to continue that dominance, provided he gets to grips with the changes to the course.
