  • The start of the 94th Scheldeprijs was conducted at Antwerp's Grote Markt. The temperature was surprisingly warm for this April day in Belgium - not that we were complaining!
  • Riders at the sign on in Antwerp's Grote Markt.
  • Miss Belgium (C, back) was happy to greet the riders on stage as they signed in. The riders were equally happy to be greeted.
  • The imposing start banner 15 mins before the start, soon to be swamped with cyclists underneath it.
  • Baden Cooke (Unibet.com) is hoping for a bunch sprint today, and is good form after finishing 17th in last Sunday's Paris-Roubaix.
  • David O'Louglin (Navigators Insurance) is hoping his luck does an about turn sometime soon, with his team counting on their sprinters Oleg Grisckine and Hilton Clarke should the race come down to a bunch gallop.
  • And they're off in the 94th Scheldeprijs Vlaanderen. Oh - and there's Tom Boonen over in the far left, riding his last race before taking a well earned break in Tasmania. That last part was a joke.
