The 74th edition of the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad will be held on Saturday, the 2nd of March 2019. The race marks the opening of the Belgian cycling calendar and features a lot of climbs from the Tour of Flanders. In 2018, the finale took in both the Wall of Geraardsbergen and Bosberg, while the race amounted to almost 200 kilometres. The Omloop is the first race in the Flemish Opening Weekend, the other one being Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. (Slideshow route/profile)
