Re: 2018 Time Trial Calendar - Open TTs, Club TTs, Team TTs and Hill Climbs

Too early to give that award. Robin is going to add a calendar feature to the website that every event organiser and racing captain will be able to edit and add events and races like these to, which will make this incredible spreadsheet totally defunct. Maybe.

Somewhere West Flanders around Oudenaarde, Kortrijk etc although any others near Ypres, Roubaix, Ghent may be useful too.
