While Storm Doris may have led us to think otherwise, with the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne taking place over the weekend, spring has sprung.

Greg van Avermaet won the former, the Olympic champion beating world champion Peter Sagan to successfully defend the title he won last year.
But the man in the rainbow jersey fought back the following day to win at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne and seal his first win of the season.
So what have we learned from our first taste of the cobble-busting action this weekend?
