Course

Ghent-Wevelgem in Flanders Fields starts in Ypres and finishes on the Vanackerestraat in Wevelgem. In the first part of the race, the peloton heads towards Veurne, where the famous Moeren are on the programme. The riders then set course for Heuvelland where, along the way, they will encounter the Monteberg, the Baneberg, the Scherpenberg and, last but not least, the Kemmelberg. The Plugstreets and numerous monuments dedicated to WWI make this race through Flanders Fields one that is unique on the calendar. On Sunday 24 March, we will discover who will be the successor of Christophe Laporte.
