On Sunday 19 March edition 9 of Gent-Wevelgem for women will be held. The route typically amounts to almost 150 kilometres and takes in a number of unpaved roads and five or six short and sharp Flemish hills, such as the Kemmelberg/Monteberg combo. The finale is played out on the flat, though. (Slideshow route/profile)
