The Omloop Het Nieuwsblad features cobbles and climbs such as the Valkenberg, Molenberg and Patersberg. Formerly known as Het Volk the race, which starts and ends in Ghent is infamous for being too cold or wet. It’s a race for the hard men and women of the peloton, not for the precious and those who only go fast with the sun on their backs.
