Registration is now open for the 26th edition of the Tour of Flanders cyclosportive which takes place on the 1st of April 2017, one day before the professionals race on the same roads.
Once again, entries are limited to 16,000 so the organisers are requesting that participants enter early to guarantee themselves a place. In addition, early registration is cheaper as the prices rise from December and again from January.
New for this addition is the introduction of a 180-kilometre version of the sportive. The 180-kilometre and 230-kilometre versions will depart from Antwerp with the 75-kilometre and 130-kilometre versions departing from Oudenaarde.
The routes have yet to be announced but will include the climbs of the Paterberg and Oude Kwaremont before finishing in Oudenaarde.
The Tour of Flanders Cyclo, is part of the SKODA Classic Challenge which also includes the Liège-Bastogne-Liege and Paris-Roubaix sportives.
