The 71st edition of the Belgian classic will be held on Sunday, the 3rd of March, 2019. 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, has been named a sprint Classic. Following a solo victory of Jasper Stuyven in 2016 and Peter Sagan outgunning Jasper Stuyven, Luke Rowe, Tiesj Benoot and Matteo Trentin on the line in 2017, the race lived up to its name in 2018.
