Edition 14 of the Tour of Flanders for women will be held on Sunday the 2nd of April, 2017. At 153.3 kilometres and featuring twelve hills, the women are ransacking the course prior to the men. The 2017 route takes in two more hills and 13 extra kilometres compared to last year’s Tour of Flanders, yet the last 40 kilometres remain the same. So the finale features the Oude Kwaremont and the inhumanly steep Paterberg. (Slideshow route/profile)
