Hey I just realised that Jasper Philipsen won the Tryptich Mounts & Castle.  :cool


If you remember Jasper was the victim of Qatar heat at the Worlds : http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=7581.msg2221306#msg2221306


The Tryptich is probably the best Belgian stage race for U23 & amateur riders. Let's remember that its main climb is the Côte du Beau site, probably the second hardest climb in the Flemish Ardennes to the Koppenberg only it's in Wallonia (but just beyond the laguage border and in the region that is historically Flemish). A cobbled climb with no dend after the top and with no gutter to "cheat" on the climb. ItIt was formerly on the route of Dwars door Vlaanderen when the latter race was still called Dwars door België (good ole days).


Jasper is really a very good ITT talent from Limburg. I hope he can evolve. :)
