Eneco Tour 2015 Route stage 7: St.Pieters-Leeuw - Geraardsbergen
Sunday, August 16, 2015 - After the 207 kilometres version of Liege-Bastogne-Liege on Saturday, the last stage of the Eneco Tour brings a 188.6 kilometres variant of the Tour of Flanders. Starting in St.Pieters-Leeuw and finishing on the Wall of Geraardsbergen, spectacle is assured on a series of steep (cobbled) climbs.
The 7th stage is a copy of Eneco’s Tour of Flanders of last year. The finish is halfway up the Wall of Geraardsbergen, but beforehand the riders have to crest it twice. The Wall is a 1.1 kilometre cobbled climb at 8.7%, with steepest sections of 20%.
From start to finish, the final stage of the Eneco Tour in 2015 totals nineteen climbs. The race closes with two local rounds of 25.6 kilometres, featuring Bosberg (1 kilometre at 6%), Onkerzelestraat (1.5 kilometres by 3%) and Denderoordberg (0.7 kilometre at 8%. The last hill is a cobbled climb that is crested with 6.1 kilometres left, while the finish line is, as said, halfway up Wall of Geraardsbergen after a 0.6 kilometre climb at 7.6%.
In 2014, Greg van Avermaet took the flowers in Geraardsbergen.
