The 18th and final climb of the Ronde van Vlaanderen is the Paterberg, 13 km from the finish, more than 246,3 km done at that point. The riders have to fear cobblestones and an incline between 12,9% and 20,3% - which is tough. The fans are ready to scream and encourage them. There's also a lot of beer. And a shiver when they watch the big screen and witness Philippe Gilbert win, after a solo ride of almost 60km. The hero.
