Our 'OMLOOP' 2020 route will include approx 70% of our previous edition that you loved, but we always add something new.
As always, the final route is a guarded secret that only the FlanRou 'ninjas' know right up until about a week the day. You'll carry a brevet card and be emailed a GPS device file after online entry has closed plus physical signage will also be on route. Burning inside us since the very start - this very early season opener is held at the start of the Spring 'cobbled classics' season. Routed on tarmac but on back lanes with similar parcours that you will see being raced on E3 Harelbeke, Ghent-Wevelgem, Dwars Door Vlaanderen or Tour of Flanders.
Perfect hard surface training if you're heading out to one of those Flandrian fondo rides or just looking for winter motivation to get your season off to a flying start... there will be a Belgian flavour at the spacious and warm hall to welcome you back in too. Very restricted numbers and as always our own physical route signage and Brevet Card will help guide you around.
includes 'Brevet' card, ride numbers & mid way indoor feed station.
