FLANDERS 17 WITH PETER LIVINGSTONE

Flanders 17 - So you think the CyclingNSW State handicappers have it tough ... try being one of three bookmakers taking bets at the Oostkamp kermesse with 112 starters. The minimum bet is 5 Euro and the numbers on the right of each rider's name denotes the win-place betting odds - 25.6 means odds of 25 to 1 for the win and 6 to 1 for a podium.  Not every rider who starts is listed on the betting sheet (being Flemish helps). Don't you think these bookmakers take a real keen interest as to who gets in the winning break with 4 laps to go.
