Eneco Tour 2016 Route stage 4: Aalter (B) – Sint-Pieters-Leeuw (B)
Thursday, September 22, 2016 – At 199.1 kilometres, stage 4 in the Eneco Tour leads from Aalter to Sint-Pieters-Leeuw. The race closes with a circuit that's on the menu twice, while the short and steep climb up the Bruine Put could thwart sprinter's ambitions.
The closing circuit at 31.7 kilometres is marked by 3,150 metres of cobbles and two categorised ascents: Alsemberg (1,200 metres at 4%) and Bruine Put. This last hill is a 900 metres ramp at 8.2%. At the top it’s 12.7 kilometres left to the (passage on the) line.
The second climb up the Bruine Put is all the more interesting as the Eneco Golden KM coincides with the steep slope. So three different intermediate sprint on the climb come with time bonuses at 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
Departure place Aalter hosted the Eneco Tour before. In 2012 Giacomo Nizzolo outsprinted Jürgen Roelandts and Manuel Belletti, while arrival place Sint-Pieters-Leeuw debuted in last year’s route when the final stage left here.
Time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting on the line.
