Vince, Chris, Neal and Chris Stevens hit the Channel Tunnel midday, Friday Nov 22nd; first stop Ypres, Belgium, for some culture a relaxed dinner and a few beers. Saturday we take in the World Cross meeting at Koksijde before heading for Gent; a quick hotel check in and meal prior to Saturday night at the velodrome. Sunday is a relaxed stroll around Gent and a good lunch before taking in the final hours of track action. Then a leisurely Monday morning drive to Calais for the train home. Yummy.
Last years winner was decided on the final event on the last lap with three pairs trying to get to the line first. A crash at the bell put paid to two teams. It couldn’t happen again; could it?
