World Cycling Championships 2021 Flanders: Route Road Race – women

World Championships road raceSaturday 25 September - The women's road race at the Worlds in Flanders travels from Antwerp to Leuven. The 157.7 kilometres route features 20 short hills, which adds up to a total of 1,047 vertical metres. A flat opener and two circuits make up the race.

The race kicks into gear at the Grote Markt in Antwerp and after 56 kilometres the riders enter the first circuit. The so called Leuven-circuit is 15.5 kilometres long and snakes its way through the ‘beer capital of Flanders’. Four uphill kicks are included in each lap.

After 1.5 runs on the Leuven-circuit the riders continue onto the Flandrien-circuit. This one is 32 kilometres long and takes in six climbs. The hardest is located on the Moskesstraat, a narrow and steep cobbled road of 550 metres long with an average gradients of 8.9%. The steepest sector at 17% appears jus before the top.

The riders return to the Leuven-circuit after one lap on the Flandrien-circuit. The Sint-Antoniusberg is the last climb of the race, 200 metres long, extremely narrow and with a 6% gradient. The slightly uphill finish appears approximately 1 kilometres later.
