something from Belgian and French press:

#wallonie DS Frédéric Amorison says they want to fight for the win today. They are happy with the start of their season in pro conti ranks (2 victories already), especially because their main target are those races later on in the middle of the year.

I thought they have had a great start to the season. Kirsch was out in the breaks over the weekend at OHN and KBK . I was surprised to see  #nuyens Veranda's Willems-Crelan given the nod over them for RVV

The race is still struggling from severe financial problems though, a 180000 EUR budget hole opened up and it will take the race a couple of years to recover from that. The 2016 price money was paid last Friday but the organization was not able to pay last year's the travel costs of the teams. (I'm not quite sure why they would need to though)

I knew I'd read something on this when I did the preview, but couldn't find it when I wanted it. That's a huge hole to fill.
