Whenever we think of the Ardennes classics, we tend to think of the Belgium classics: Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Flèche Wallonne. Of course, we can't forget the Amstel Gold Race.

The two Belgian classics are the oldest; Liège-Bastogne-Liège, by far the oldest and prestigious classic first held in 1892, late April. It's one of the Five Monuments of Cycling. La Flèche Wallonne (the Walloon Arrow) first held in 1936 is equally prestigious classic run between the Amstel Gold Race and LBL. Perhaps, because it's the new kid on the block, Amstel Gold Race held in 1966 is the most important road cycling event in the Netherlands.

Philippe Gilbert is the current King of the Ardennes, the rider who won all three in 2011. And, from this we proudly created the NEW...

This stunning cap is made from blue cotton/polyester twill fabric and we custom made the stripe detail. After looking high and low there's no Belgium stripe ribbon available here in Vancouver. So, that's what we wanted and Carolle cleverly designed the ribbon! We wanted a strong statement and I believe we've made it ...with a 1-inch Belgian stripe on top of the brim and a new stripe detail on the rear left side. Our King of the Ardennes fits comfortably under your helmet ... whilst proudly displaying your Belgian pride!

Available here.
