Women Elite race info
As in previous editions, the peloton gets under way in Ypres, on Sunday 24 March. Close to the imposing Menin Gate, out of respect for those who lost their lives in Flanders Fields, the race will be started not with a shot but with a flag. Also this season, the women head towards De Moeren and conquer the steepest side of the Kemmelberg. Along the way, the WWI monuments take the race to an exceptional height. Last year, Marlen Reusser soloed to victory on the Vanackerestraat in Wevelgem. Who will succeed her?
Start: Menin Gate in Ypres – 13:15
Finish: Vanackerestraat in Wevelgem - around 17:36
Distance: 171,2 km
Switzerland's Marlen Reusser started her solo towards Wevelgem 40 km from the line. More than two minutes behind the winner, Jastrab raced to second place just ahead of Van der Duin.
