With its 102-year history, The Ronde van Vlaanderen, MARCH 29 TO APRIL 9 2018, the Tour of Flanders – is a monument of cycling. It’s arguably the biggest cycling event in Belgium and one of the hardest one-day races on the calendar period.
Brutally steep climbs, rough cobbles, technical narrow roads and brutal winds – this race has all the elements Flanders is (in)famous for, and the win comes with a lot of prestige.
De Ronde, as it’s known in Flanders, always serves up some of the season’s best racing with its combination of explosive, cobbled hills, long distance (266.5km in 2018), and stacked field (as you’ll see below).
Of cycling’s five monuments, Tour of Flanders isn’t quite as unpredictable as Milano-Sanremo or Paris-Roubaix. The strongest man often wins. Yet, a healthy dose of luck and careful tactics are key to victory in Oudenaarde, Belgium this weekend. Here are 10 riders who will likely make the final selection and could very well go on to win.
After weeks of build-up, it’s finally here – the Tour of Flanders. There have been plenty of hotly contested Classics over the cobblestones of Belgium, but this is the one we’ve all been waiting for; the race that all of Flanders will come to a standstill to watch, and make or break a rider’s spring.
In the races leading up to the Ronde, no outstanding candidate has emerged. Unlike last year, when Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) and Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step) went on scintillating runs prior to finishing second and first respectively at the Tour of Flanders, this spring the wins have been shared out between multiple different riders.
