with sufficient resolution to see the course in enough detail to work up a
viewing plan. Any pointers to either the map or a live viewing strategy?

Thanks...giorgitd

What's Google Earth like in that area? Never mind, I checked. Its not
as good as it is in many parts of the U.S. Probably worth looking at
as better than a guess. Roads and terrain only worked best.

Are you on bikes or in cars?

Your vantage points may differ

But get the best - largest scale - Michelin - you can plus the
latest route as per Het Volk/Het Nieuwsblad and do some recces and
timing tests to determine your overall viewing plan

You may be able to intersect the race at several points

Make sure to take in a major climb and if your schedule goes awry,
head for a bar that has a Tele

You'll need a lot of good hunting to find a mjor climb on PR..
I usually go to the Foret d'Arenberg (sp?) and then to Cysoing where
there are a couple of good crowded bars with TVs..
Enjoy!
CU en route..

OOOPS - I got mixed up there and thought we were still at Flenders

But with the exception of the hill , the advise remains the same
