The Minerva Classic Brugge - De Panne marks the start of 2 weeks of top level cycling competition in Flanders. It starts in Bruges and finishes in De Panne.
The race avoids the usual highlights of other Flemish races. It has a character of its own and is completely ridden on West-Flemish territory. It finishes with local laps that incorporate the pan flat and exposed roads around De Moeren. The wind will be a decisive factor.
The men's race is on Wednesday and the women's race on Thursday. This race is a UCI World Tour competition.Back to Races
