Outdoor Fitness – Tour of Flanders with Johan Museeuw
Back in the first week of March, the Le Domestique Tours team, together with journalist Felix Lowe (best known for his pro race coverage on Eurosport) ventured out to the home of the Tour of Flanders to meet and ride with the Lion of Flanders himself, three times winner of both the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix, Johan Museeuw.
Featured in the May edition of Outdoor Fitness Magazine, we had a fantastic day learning about the art of attacking the cobbled climbs of the Tour of Flanders (peaking at up to 22%), why Johan favoured terrible weather when racing on the cobbles and the art of mastering tyre pressure.
You can read all about our day by purchasing the May edition of Outdoor Fitness Magazine, but you can also enjoy the behind the scenes photos taken by photographer Tom Willcocks below.
If the article and pictures have inspired you to ride the cobbled climbs of the Tour of Flanders yourself, you can still join us on the cobbles in 2016 on one of our Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix day trips and weekend tours. Alternatively, for those truly dedicated to conquering the cobbled bergs you can also join us in 2017 on one of our Tour of Flanders Sportive and Pro Race Packages. We have both scheduled tour options available, together with private group packages, so regardless of your position, you can be sure of the finding the perfect experience with Le Domestique Tours.
Full details of our day trips and weekend tours can be found on our Events page, while those looking to tackle the Sportive and Pro Race Package can find full details here.
