Sunday, April 2nd: Oudenaarde - Oudenaarde (158 km)

The Tour of Flanders is one of the biggest one-day cycling races in the world and has been a fixture on the cycling calendar for decades. Since 2004, it has also become an important race for women. This year, the Tour of Flanders for women will take place on Sunday, April 2nd, and it promises to be an exciting race once again.

The course for the women's Tour of Flanders remains largely the same as in previous years. The start and finish are in Oudenaarde, with the riders covering a distance of 158 kilometers. The most famous hills on the course are the Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg, but many more cobbled sections are also part of the course.

The previous editions of the Tour of Flanders for women have often been very exciting and have produced surprising winners. Last year, for example, Lotte Kopecky won the race in her tricolour jersey after being in the attack all day.
