Brabantse Pijl 2023: The Route

Brabantse Pijl 2023Wednesday 12 April - The Brabantse Pijl traverses Flemish Brabant and Walloon Brabant. It's like the Amstel Gold Race, but shorter. The 205.1 kilometres route includes 25 short, sharp and sometimes cobbled hills.

Last year, the young American was part of a lead group with Remco Evenepoel, Tim Wellens, Benoît Cosnefroy, Warren Barguil, and two of his team mates, Ben Turner and Tom Pidcock. INEOS played it well and when Sheffield sneaked away in the last 4 kilometres, Pidcock and Turner neutralised all attacks.

This year’s route is virtually identical to last year’s. Again, the 21.9 kilometres circuit southeast of Brussels determines the character of the race. 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.

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.
