With three victories, Tom Boonen is record holder. He won the race in 2007, 2009 and 2014.
Taking 53 victories, Belgium is, by far, the most successful country in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. The edition of 1961 even brought two Belgian victors, Leon van Daele and Fred Debruyne. Without photo-finish it was impossible to decide who had been the fastest in the sprint. The solution was to proclaim two winners.
Mark Cavendish is the only rider in the pack with two victories, so he could join Tom Boonen as the most successful rider in the history of Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.
