World Cycling Productions 2012 Tour of Flanders & Ghent Wevelgem DVD
2 Race Set approx. 240min.
Tour of Flanders
Take sixteen cobbled climbs that rear out of the Flemish landscape like the sides of houses. Place them just where they can do most damage to legs and shattered nerves in 150 miles of flat-out, crash-plagued racing through a deafening, jostling "wall" of cycling's most diehard fans. Finally, use one radically re-designed route - and the 2012 Tour of Flanders becomes, once more, a Classic race in a class of its own. Could Fabian Cancellara - aka Spartacus - reclaim the "Monument" that so narrowly defeated cycling's top gladiator in 2011? Or local hero Tom Boonen become the fifth rider ever to take the Tour of Flanders three times and continue to dominate a spring in which he has had no rival? Or would another, unknown contender, manage to out-match and outwit these two giants of sport on Flanders' lethally unpredictable terrain?
Commentary by Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwen. Approx. 120. min
Classics giant Tom Boonen suffered a stinging defeat at the hands of up-and-coming star Sep Vanmarcke in the Omloop. But in Ghent-Wevelgem, Boonen bounced back in style, first outwitting World Champion Mark Cavendish and then outclassing the field in a brutally crashmarred, no-holds-barred bunch sprint as thrilling as it is terrifying to watch. Packed with gritty, fast-moving race action and humming with suspense for 200 mud-splattered, nail-biting miles, both of these Classics will have you glued to your sofa right from the moment the start flag drops - and battle commences.
