Spring Classics with David McKenzie (SBS TV)
- We will base ourselves out of Ghent, Belgium for the duration of this trip. Ghent was home to David McKenzie for much of his Pro cycling career and is a wonderful old town, steeped in history and stunning architecture. We will be staying in the stunning 4 Star Grand Hotel Reylof right in the center of Ghent. This Hotel will ensure us a high level of comfort with great access to the town center and all that Flanders has to offer. During this trip you will get to ride both the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix Cyclosportives (GrandFondos) as well as seeing both of these epic Classics live on race day. Rides will feature the traditional Belgian countryside you are now accustomed to seeing on TV during the spring, including the dreaded and much loved “pavé”. You will also get to visit a WWI war memorial and a Belgian Brewery! David McKenzie is an Australian cyclist, winner of stage 7 of the 2000 Giro d’Italia and Australian National Champion. He is now a TV commentator and expert analyst for Australian TV Broadcaster SBS, whilst also working as a cycling coach in Australia. David traveled extensively during his Pro cycling career on various teams from Europe to Asia via the USA. During much of his career David based himself out of Ghent Belgium. David is very familiar with Ghent and has a soft spot for the Flandrian region. Having lived in the area and raced the cobbles of Belgium, you will get this once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the Pro life as you ride with David on his old stomping grounds. You will also get to watch the world’s biggest Classics with someone who has truly “been there and done that”. We have managed to pull him away from the TV cameras for this 11 day trip, so that you can benefit from his experience firsthand. Also accompanying you on the trip will be Simeon Green, a Frenchman with an degree in English and Literature who was raced the UCI Continental Circuit for years.
