GP Impanis - Van Petegem - 21st September 2013
« on: September 20, 2013, 09:02 »
It is time for the seasons most important, most prestigious race.   Yes thats right folks - its finally arrived .... (cant believe we didnt have a countdown clock for this :fp)

The GP Impanis - Van Petegem is here

The race starts in the birthplace of its namesake Peter Van Petegem - the wonderful Brakel.

It has an impressive history of being run to honor Raymond Impanis .. but he was so important that the race folded from 95-2010 ... and in 2011 was reinstated on the European circuit.  It wasnt until last year that the race became a UCI heavyweight once more ... upgraded to a 1.1 event, which was won by the one and only, the great ... Andre Greipel.    No doubt the highlight of his career.

    Rode it in 89, 90, 91... always gave it a good nudge... snapped a frame in 89, crashed in 90, and punctured in 91... twice!  :evil:
