Great opening weekend Belgium classics
NUNSPEET, The Netherlands, 28. February 2011 - The road racing classics season kicked off this weekend with two major races on Belgium soil. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday was won by Sebastian Langeveld (Rabobank Cycling Team) who beat last year’s winner Juan Antonio Flecha (Sky) on the finish line. Langeveld was riding SHIMANO DURA-ACE 7900 series components, as well as DURA-ACE C24 wheels and a PRO handlebar and stem. Flecha used DURA-ACE Di2 components and DURA-ACE C35 wheels, and so did Matthew Hayman (Sky) who completed the podium.

Christopher Sutton (Sky) won the bunch sprint in Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne yesterday. He was using DURA-ACE Di2 components and DURA-ACE C35 wheels, just like Yaheni Hutarovich (FDJ) who became second. Hutarovich also uses a PRO handlebar and stem.

Congratulations to all, looking forward to an exciting season!
