There is great expectation for the Tour of Flanders 2018: after the enterprise in the Milano-Sanremo, Vincenzo Nibali arrives in Belgium with the favors of the prediction (he will have to face Peter Sagan, Philippe Gilbert and Greg Van-Avermaet), even if the five pavé stretches (road paving formed by stone or porphyry cubes) could put a strain on his physical resistance. The race winds along the 265 kilometers that connect Antwerp to Oudenaarde and that will see the cyclists face, in addition to the five cobblestone stretches, also eighteen walls (very short climbs, but with slopes that can exceed even 20%). The race will start at 10:30 a.m. from Antwerp and the arrival is expected between 4:40 and 5:30 p.m., depending on the average held by the group.
