Film Friday: The Ardennes Classics

For those suffering with the loss of the cobbled classics for another twelve months, here's a small reminder that we are still well and truly in the Classics season - the Ardennes Classics. The next of which is this Sundays Amstel Gold Race in the Netherlands featuring the final climb of the Cauberg (see HERE). The Ardennes classics are hillier than the cobbled Belgian Classics that came before them, marking a transition in which we see the Grand Tour contenders come out to play and fight it out with the Classics specialists. This cool, classy little video shows Philippe Gilbert winning all four of the Ardennes classics back to back in 2011. It really is worth a watch. Enjoy.
