Reminder: Fleische Wallonne and LBL on Versus Sunday night

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

FYI : not to be a pain in the a.., but it is Flèche Wallonne. I agree it is not easy. We have many languages in Europe and everything is getting translated. This is a problem particularly for city names, where the translations sometimes have no resemblance with the local name. Flèche is french for arrow and Wallonne relates to Wallonia, the southern half of Belgium where the race takes place. Hope you enjoy watching and thanks for your interest in the belgian classics (and I guess beers too).

Whoops...I spell checked Wallonne (learned that it has 2 N's), but missed Fleche. Sorry.

You really think people are going to take their time to find that Cervelo-looking e on their keyboards? Easy enough to copy and paste è è è Cervèlo except the thing is the other say. Whatever.
