20: Flanders fine tuning and moon racing
The races leading up to Sunday's Tour of Flanders always offer some clues as to which teams and riders are in the best shape to contend on the cobbled hills.
Richard Moore returns from Belgium to discuss Gent-Wevelgem with Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe and look ahead to the Tour of Flanders.
We also hear from Allan Peiper, sports director of UAE Team Emirates, about Alexander Kristoff's tactics on the Kemmelberg and how he set himself up to win the race.
