Brit’ success at first classic of the international road race season


On March 1 the Belgian semi-classic, the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad (both men and women’s races) sparked road fans out of their winter slumber.




We will be updating this page once we get to know of more links etc.


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.
