Riders beaten by the wind in Gent-Wevelgem

29/03/201516:33

Videozone - 29/03/15 - The classic cycle race Gent-Wevelgem is becoming a heroic race due to the weather conditions. There is the continuous rain, but also the hard wind sweeping over the West-Flemish countryside and creating problems for many riders. They are constantly fighting to keep their balance, with some losing this battle from time to time. Like Geraint Thomas, the Weshman who won the E3 Harelbeke last Friday. Thomas was not injured and could come back in the front with the other breakaway riders. (Dutch commentary)

Vilvoorde, Belgium's most remarkable station

28/03/201516:20

Videozone - 25/03/15 - Despite being quite a busy station - with 6,000 passengers on a daily basis, and up to 14 stops per hour on weekdays - Vilvoorde Station, just north of Brussels, is in bad need of renovation. The staircases, platforms and shelters are actually a danger to commuters. The site is over a century old and enjoys a protected status, but Belgian Rail has no cash for refurbishment works, or has at least other priorities.
