Where are the race buses (at start) and where do the riders start?

The unofficial start is at 10h05, on the Markt. The official start is at 10h20 in Kortemarkstraat.

Have the necessary respect for the riders, the fear of catching corona or a flu (variant) is present. Support is allowed, but please in a sensible way, thank you!

You can find the list of participants HERE



How many kilometres and laps will the riders cover?


The total distance is just below 200 kilometres (198.6 km).

There is first a lead-up from the start to the finish (25.2 km) and then 3 laps of 57.8 km each.

HERE you can find the roadmap.


What is the best way to reach Roeselare?


The finish zone is within walking distance of the station, so taking the train is a good idea.

By car, follow the direction of the riders. Keep in mind that the arrival zone (Kaaistraat) is completely closed off to all traffic.

Roeselare has several large centre car parks: https://parkeren.be/onze-steden-en-gemeenten/west-vlaanderen/roeselare/parkings , all within walking distance of the race route.


Where is the riders' park at the finish?


The park is also at the head of the Vaart, the Trakelweg, which is actually an extension of the finish zone.

Stick to the (traffic) rules and the instructions of our security services, thank you for making it a nice and safe race together!


Is the race on TV?


Yes: Sporza and Eurosport will broadcast live. Attention: the arrival is scheduled between 2.30 p.m. and 3 p.m., so be on time and best to go to the bakery in the morning for some cakes, don't hesitate to enjoy our Jempi beer too :-).


What else is good to know?
