Ridley Fenix Road Bike

The Belgians love the Tour of Flanders, and they love it even more when they have something to cheer about.

With Fabian Cancellara riding away on the Paterberg to Oudenaarde for another trademark solo victory this year, and Peter Sagan claiming the second spot, Belgian dreams were consolated as Jürgen Roelandts completed the podium in third place.

That podium spot - from a Belgian rider, riding for a Belgian team (Lotto-Belisol), aboard a Belgian bike - was the first success for the new Ridley Fenix. The Fenix (pronounced Phoenix) is Ridley's endurance bike, which looks to have the best aspects of the Excalibur and Damocles combined.
