In the series of beautiful French cycling terms: Tête de la Course, or literally: head of the race. The place for every rider with ‘ambitions’. Because like the old cycling wisdom goes: when your not in front you can’t compete for the win. So: Allez! Aller à la Tete de la course!
Once a year all churches in Flanders are empty and abandoned. Where everyone is? On the sides of the roads with legendary names like the 'Berendries' and 'De koppenberg', all anxiously awaiting the passing of 'De Ronde' (Tour of Flanders), the apotheosis of the (Flemish) cycling-spring, the race of almost religious proportions, also known affectionately called "De Hoogmis". Because in Flanders, cycling is religion, or at least on that one Sunday in April.

A ‘Chasse patate', a typical cycling phrase for an escape from the peloton which everyone knows is doomed to fail, even the rider who’s in the ‘Chasse Patate’. However, he (or she) has no choice but to push on and eat away the miles, if only to please the sponsor.
Cyclists, sometimes they seem nothing short than beastlike. Breakaway on breakaway, indefatigable, uphill, downhill, over the cobbles, in full sprint, stomping through the air thick of the scent of fish & chips and stale beer on the Vélodrome. Cunning as a fox, strong as a bear: L'ours de la course.
Inspired by the happiest and most dreaded place of the peloton: Tête de la Course (head of the race) and Arrière de la Course (back of the race). The difference between being able to compete for the victory and ‘simply’ hanging on and trying to survive.
Le Sprinteur: an ode to the men with nerves of steel and dynamite thighs. De riders who 'hide' all day long, waiting for that one moment, the apotheosis. The moment that the real powerhouses cross their swords. With one goal in mind: the finish line... first.
