Ghent-Wevelgem In Flanders Fields travels once again along the Flemish Fields that were once the backdrop of the Great War on Sunday, 26 March 2017. The contest pays tribute with its itinerary to the 600.000 victims who met their demise in Flanders Fields. A detour will be made through the Plugstreets, in and around Ploegsteert, to commemorate the Christmas ceasefire of 1914.
The heavy showers right after the riders had passed the finishline in Wevelgem was much telling. What should have been a beautiful day, ended dramaticaly after the passing away of rider Antoine Demoitié. The whole cycling family is mourning.
