Overview

Experience the race at home!

17 February 2021

The countdown to the opening classic has really begun. Unfortunately, the current health situation does not yet allow us to cheer on the riders at the start in Ghent, along the course or at the finish in Ninove. Therefore, we are asking you to follow the opening classic from your couch this year. 

During the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad no spectators will be allowed at the start and finish. The hills and cobbled sections will be closed as well. There will also be a ban on gatherings of more than four people and mouth masks will be required along the route from one hour prior to the race until one hour after. So for once, you will be able to watch the opening classic better on television. 

The Flanders Classics autumn in 2020 was a success partly thanks to the cycling fans. Help us this year and experience the race from your living room.
