About Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
Taking place in late February, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad marks the long-awaited and much-anticipated return to the one-day racing season. Along with Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, which often takes place a day later, Omloop is considered to be the new season's grand opener, which is why many excitedly refer to this weekend in late February as 'Opening Weekend'.
As well as being the first men's European WorldTour race of the year, it’s also a great rehearsal for the upcoming cobblestone Classics as it features many of the famous hills from the Tour of Flanders. It’s here we get to see who has been training properly during the winter and who we should pay extra attention to over the next few months.
