The first weekend of March will, in the cycling world, be known as Opening Weekend. Opening Weekend marks the “opening” of the Spring Classics season, with the UCI World Tour Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday and the UCI 1.HC Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne on Sunday. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will be lining up with the defending Omloop champion, Michael Valgren, on Saturday and he will have a strong team around him. The beautiful European weather we have been experiencing up until now is also set to take a turn just in time for Opening Weekend. So, with the expected rain and wind, the 200km routes of both.
