Rouleur podcast: The Belgian Special – Fred Wright, Jens Keukeleire and Deserter

Posted on

Opening weekend went off without a hitch – let’s hope that’s not the only racing we see for a while. Podchats with debutant Fred Wright, and local Classics veteran, Jens Keukeleire of EF Pro Cycling. The Deserter boys share their Koksjide cyclo-cross experience: “Cyclocross on sand… it’s very tiring to watch.”

“400k in two days! I think it’s the busiest weekend of racing I’ve ever had.”

The Classics season got underway at the weekend with two opening races in Flanders – Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne Brussel Kuurne. Ian Parkinson was there to talk one-day tactics with first-year pro Fred Wright of Bahrain McLaren and EF Pro Cycling’s Jens Keukeleire. And the men behind The Deserter blog leave their natural home in the pubs of South London for the beer tent in the dunes of Koksjide.
