Gent - Wevelgem 2020 - women: Route

Gent-Wevelgem 2020Sunday 11 October – At 141 kilometres, the women's edition of Gent-Wevelgem includes seven hills and three dirt road sections, while the last 35 kilometres are played out on the flat.

The start is in historic Ypres before the route navigates Flanders’ flat fields. After approximately 61 kilometres the first uphill appears and it takes the shape of the Scherpenberg. The women continue over the Vidaigneberg, Baneberg, Monteberg and Kemmelberg before entering the so-called ‘plugstreets’. Three sections of dirt road follow in rapid succession.

Two more obstacles remaining. The riders return to the Monteberg/Kemmelberg combo. At the top of the last hill the riders face 35 flat kilometres on wide and exposed roads. The first part goes to the north and after a passage in Ypres the last 20 kilometres go in easterly direction to the finish in Wevelgem.

Kirsten Wild is title holder. Last year, the Dutch powerhouse outsprinted Lorena Wiebes and Letizia Paternoster.

Gent-Wevelgem for women starts at 13.45 and the race is expected to finish around 17.30 – both are local times (CEST).
