You may or may not know that the promoters for the WorldTour races in Flanders banded together and are working on bringing all the events to the level of the Tour of Flanders. As part of that Gent-Wevelgem has increased the length of the course 19 miles, they are running the second annual cyclosportive (or Grand Fondo if you prefer) following all or part of the race course, and adding a women’s race right before the men’s event.
For us this is not a huge change, we will happily take you on the race course the day before the professionals. We will happily show you the race a few times. And, if you don’t want to do the full route, will take you over a few shortcuts to just ride the fun stuff.
