Experience Gent-Wevelgem in the centre of Ypres

Road  15/03/2023

The Grote Markt in Ypres is once again the place to be on Sunday 26 March. After we have presented all the professional teams one by one on the starting podium, the starting signal will be given under the Menin Gate for a new edition of Gent-Wevelgem in Flanders Fields. Ypres will remain under the spell of the race all day long because, in addition to the professional races, competitors in five youth categories will also be giving their best in and around the City of Peace.
