Cycling superstar Tom Boonen has spoken exclusively to Eurosport about Sunday's huge race, the Tour of Flanders, which takes place in his native Belgium.

Boonen talks about the race's extraordinary climbs, which are among the most challenging of the entire year: one is contested over cobbles for a large part of the way, another is a rare straight line climb at a 20% gradient.

Boonen's fascinating insights into the race aren't all - Eurosport also caught up with Fabian Cancellara and Peter Sagan to get their views on the epic race.

You can watch the race LIVE on British Eurosport on Sunday - click here for the TV schedule.
