I did look on the calander on www.wielerbondvlaanderen.be to see at tomorrow's races in the region. As for junior races there is a kermesse race in Doomkerke-Ruiselede (that's actually at only 10km from here) and one in the south of the province in Zandvoorde-Zonnebeke (near Ypres/Ieper). If your team said "near Brugge/Bruges", that will probably be the Doomkerke race, since that is about 20km from Bruges. There is a U23 race in Brugge-Sint-Pieters by the way, but that's not the junior category.



More info about the Doomkerke-Ruiselede kermesse:

This means inscriptions are in the local pub called "New York" and dressing rooms are in the local football stadium. Lenght of the race is 93km, or 16 laps of 5.8km. Be prepared to have very windy conditions in that part of the country, and no much shelter from trees in that village. The main road there is 5m, but you will probably race over 2m roads as well; mostly tarmac there.

Not sure about junior races, but 40 to 90 riders is a good guess. All depends on the other races taking place in the weekend or on the day in the same region.

Yeah... good luck and have fun. A pity I'm competing in Bellem (Aalter) myself, at about 15km from there; if not I could have come to cheer you on!
