Riders & teams to their final recon for the Tour of Flanders

The next cobbled classic arrives in the coming days with the Tour of Flanders. Rider’s get their last bit of  reconnaissance in prior to the big show down. Vincenzo Nibali will look to tackle Flanders for the first time as he adjusts himself to the cobble riding that he will endure during this years Tour de France.

Vincenzo may be a dark horse though as his Milano-Sanremo victory shows that he’s in form and the last time the Tour featured a cobbled stage Nibali showed his great bike handling skills and speed to finish 3rd on the stage while beating most of the cobbled classic riders.
