Brabantse Pijl 2022: The Route

Brabantse Pijl 2022Wednesday 13 April - The Brabantse Pijl traverses Flemish Brabant and Walloon Brabant. None of the climbs are hard in themselves, but the ceaseless succession wears the riders out. The 204.8 kilometres includes 25 hills.

The heart of the race is a circuit of 21.9 kilometres to the southeast of Brussels. It’s tackled three times and contains five climbs. In order of appearance Hagaard, Hertstraat, Moskesstraat, Holstheide, and the so-called S-Bocht – or, S Curve – just before the finish in Overijse.

Part of the route is familiar for last year’s road race at the Worlds. Most notably, the steep and cobbled Moskesstraat and the S-curve.

The 120 kilometres run-up to the circuit features six climbs. Then it goes on via the Hertstraat, Moskesstraat, Holstheide and S-Bocht to the first passage on the line.

Last year, Matteo Trentin, Tom Pidcock and Wout van Aert were with three at the front on the last time up the Moskesstraat. They remained together before Van Aert opened the sprint just after the S-Bocht. Trentin was dropped, but Pidcock came across and bested Van Aert on the false flat run-in to the line.
