Joe Staples gave me this book about a decade ago and I take it off the shelf and thumb through the black and white photos every once and a while. This time of year always reminds me to look at it and try to soak up what makes the spring classics great and how a poor farming region in northern Europe can be such a great place for cycling culture. The fact that this book is small, all photos and square about 5 years before Instagram is also noteworthy. Thanks @mrjoestaples! #iranottony #flandersclassics #parisroubaix
