Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, the opening race of the spring classics, is a day that cyclists and cycling fans eagerly look forward to for months each year. After the Omloop joined the elite circle of World Tour races two years ago, we are ready to add a new chapter in 2020. The cycling city of Ghent will remain the backdrop for the entrance of the World Tour racers on Belgian soil, but the redesigned final, with the finish in Meerbeke and the legendary Muur van Geraardsbergen/Bosberg duo in the final, will certainly promise a great spectacle! Ninove, a city that breathes racing, is eager after seven years to welcome back the cycling pack and celebrate the first cycling champions of the season on the podium. The circuit of the Omloop is an homage to the old Tour of Flanders route and will summon nostalgia from anyone feeling sentimental for that course. Combine that with a generous serving of heroism and a lively atmosphere, and you’re all ready for the new cycling season. Flanders Classics is organising a varied VIP programme for the 75th Omloop Het Nieuwsblad which allows you to take part in the race for the entire day, whether you opt for the start, the finish or an extensive day programme. Enjoy a spectacular view and choose the VIP programme that suits you best.
