E3 Harelbeke 2017: The Route
Friday, 24 March 2017 - At 206.1 kilometres, edition 60 of the E3 Harelbeke is played out on a route that's crammed with Flemish hills and cobbles. The race takes in fifteen sharp climbs and five stretches of pavé.
The Flemish party begins with the Katteberg, a ‘helling’ that’s crested after 30 kilometres of racing. The following 63 kilometres bring two cobbled sectors but no climbs. We are just getting warmed up before the route takes in La Houpe, Oude Kruisberg, Knokteberg, Hotondberg, Kortekeer, Taaienberg, Boigneberg, Eikenberg, Stationberg, Kapelberg, Paterberg, Oude Kwaremont, Karnemelkbeekstraat, and, finally, the Tiegemberg.
All the climbs are taken on the trot, mostly being not more than 5 kilometres apart. The longest distance is from the penultimate climb, Karnemelkbeekstraat, to the last one, Tiegemberg – 11.1 kilometres. After cresting the Tiegemberg 18.5 kilometres remain.
In the 2016-edition Peter Sagan and Michal Kwiatkowski attacked at the underestimated Karnemelkbeekstraat. They held off the chasing peloton and in doing so Sagan spent too much energy. In arrival place Harelbeke, the World Champion was outsprinted by Kwiatkowski.
