Nokere Koerse

Gert Steegmans, a Quickstep rider who once embarrassed his team leader Tom Boonen by outsprinting him, has won Nokere Koerse. Defending champion and just-beyond-neo-pro Jens Keukeleire was fourth. Another Aussie, Graeme Brown was third and second place belonged to Stefan van Dijck from the Netherlands.

Nokereberg, where the race ends is one of my favorite cobblestone climbs. It is also the location of Tanderus, one of my favorite restaurants. Plenty of reasons to visit tiny Nokere it would seem!

Final 3K through Kruishoutem to Nokere with commentary from Johan Museeuw.
