Women's UCI Elite World Champion Road Race, Saturday September 25th

Road World Championships head to a very Hilly Flanders

Another exciting World Championships on the menu as the races head to Belgium "Classics Style" this September 23rd - 26th

The road races start with the men's junior and under 23 races taking place on Friday, September 24. Women's junior and elite races both go ahead a day later with the elite men's road race being the last event on the Sunday 26th.

The time trials set off from Knokke-Heist to finish in Bruges after a virtually flat race on September 19th and 20th.

The men's under 23 race as well as both the elite men's and women's races all start in Antwerp and the famous Grote Markt before riding both the Leuven circuit (four climbs) and the Flandrien circuit (six climbs).

The men's elite road race is over a brutal distance of 268.3km taking in 2,562 metres of elevation including 42 categorised climbs along the way over the two  circuits after a flat first quarter of the day and a slightly uphill finish on the Geldenaaksevest.

The road race for men includes multiple circuits and takes in no less than 42 climbs, which adds up to 2,562 vertical metres. The route amounts to 267.7 kilometres, while the finish on Leuven’s Geldenaaksevest runs slightly uphill.

The men's elite road race is over a brutal distance of 268.3km

The women tackle the same circuits, only less often. After 20 climbs and 157.5 kilometres the finish is also on the Geldenaanaaksevest.

Julian Alaphilippe and Anna van der Breggen are title holders in the road race, while Filippo Ganna and Anna van der Breggen defend their ITT crowns in Flanders.
