Besides the Tour of Flanders and Gent-Wevelgem, the Scheldeprijs and De Brabantse Pijl also received a new date. On October 7 De Brabantse Pijl is planned. The Scheldeprijs gets October 14th as new date, instead of Dwars door Vlaanderen.
After consultation with the organisation of Dwars door Vlaanderen and the city of Waregem, a race on the planned date, 14 October, turned out to be difficult to organise. That's why it was decided to fill in the vacant date with the oldest Flemish spring classic, the Scheldeprijs. Dwars door Vlaanderen will have its 75th edition in 2021.
A week earlier, on 7 October, both men and women will compete for victory in the 60th and thus jubilee edition of De Brabantse Pijl.
