The 69th edition of the Belgian classic will be held on Sunday, the 26th of February, 2017. As always, Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne is on the calendar on the ninth Sunday of the year, the day after Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Together the two races comprise the Flemish Opening Weekend.
‘KBK’, as the race is often abbreviated, is perfect for sprinters. Mark Cavendish, Alexander Kristoff and Elia Viviani were on the podium in 2016.
