Omloop Het Nieuwsblad records

The first fourteen editions were all won by Belgian riders. Since then they added 42 more wins, making Belgium record holder with 56 victories. The last Belgian winner was Greg Van Avermaet (2017).

Ian Stannard took the race both in 2014 and 2015. The Briton is the only non-Belgian rider winning the Omloop twice.

While thirteen Belgians did win the race twice, only three Belgians were able to do so on three occasions: Ernest Sterckx (1952, ’53, ’56), Joseph Bruyère (1974, ’75, ’80) and Peter Van Petegem (1997, ’98, 2002).

Ian Stannard, Greg Van Avermaet and Philippe Gilbert are the only two-time winners who are still in the peloton.
