The 70th edition of the Belgian classic will be held on Sunday, the 25th of February, 201. As always, Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne is on the calendar on the ninth Sunday of the year, the day after Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Together the two races comprise the Flemish Opening Weekend.

‘KBK’, as the race is often abbreviated, is often won by sprinters – although last year it was a five-up sprint. Peter Sagan, Jasper Stuyven and Luke Rowe comprised the podium. Tiesj Benoot was fourth and Matteo Trentin fifth.
