The Muur: Gone But Not Forgotten
Apr 1, 2021
The Muur van Geraardsbergen is one of pro cycling's most iconic climbs, a cobblestone beast with a chapel at its summit.

We ride the Muur ourselves to discover what makes the climb so mythical, and recount the hill's most dramatic moments in the Tour of Flanders.
