The start of the new cycling season is getting closer real quick now, something real cycling fanatics automatically link with thé spring classic opener: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. After the new Ronde van Vlaanderen route last week, we are pleased to give you a brief overview of the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2017 track.
The news was already in the air for quite some time, but is now officially confirmed by the International Cycling Union (UCI): from 2017 on Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Dwars Door Vlaanderen will be included in the WorldTour calendar.
While Tiesj Benoot was satisfied with his new step in the right direction, Peter Sagan was also reasonably pleased with his performance.
Greg Van Avermaet won the 71st edition of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad last Saturday, leaving Peter Sagan and his compatriot Tiesj Benoot far behind in the end spurt. ‘I managed to create a gap, and of course, I have certain skills’, he explained shortly after the race.
