The 75th edition of the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad will be held on Saturday 29 February. The race marks the opening of the Belgian cycling calendar and features a lot of climbs from the Tour of Flanders. Last year’s finale took in both the Wall of Geraardsbergen and Bosberg, while the finish was in Ninove. Usually amounting to 200 kilometres, the Omloop is the first race in the Flemish Opening Weekend – the other one being Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. (Slideshow route/profile)
Zdenek Stybar won the 2019 edition with a late attack, while Greg Van Avermaet and Tim Wellens rounded out the podium.
