Nokere - Koerse
Ozzies the world over can rejoice as Graham Brown won the Belgian semi classic Nokere - Koerse last Wednesday.
British rider Ben Swift (Katuhsa) finished second on the tricky cobbled uphill finish.
We managed to catch the race last year on our way back to London and the atmosphere on the final kilometer is amazing.
