The people of Flanders don't really go in for nice, steady, hairpinned climbs up their hills. In fact it sometimes seems like they look for the steepest hills, and just put a road straight up them! But that does lead to some truly iconic, and really, really hard climbs!
Matt and Dan rode what are, in our opinion, the five hardest climbs in Flanders, and even battled some particularly Belgian weather to work out once and for all which climb is the hardest!
Which is your favourite
