The Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad road cycling races are part of the opening weekend of spring classics.

Even though races take place in Oman, the Algarve and ‘Down Under’ in January and February, for true cycling fans the season starts with the cycle race “Omloop Het Nieuwsblad”. Every year, they cheer their heroes on to victory on the slopes of the Flemish Ardennes.
