Removing the Muur and Bosberg from the Tour of Flanders is like removing the Arenberg Forest and the Carrefour de l'Arbre from Paris Roubaix. Are the organizers nuts??? I think so and I will tell you why.

Reason 3: The finish line
The finishing staight in Meerbeke was PERFECT.
Long enough for sprints to be very contentious.
Straight enough for the lone escapee to take it all in.
