Dwars Door Vlaanderen provides exciting midweek classics opportunity

Team Qhubeka ASSOS will line up at the UCI World Tour Dwars Door Vlaanderen classic on Wednesday, buoyed by the recent 2nd place finish of Giacomo Nizzolo at the weekends Gent-Wevelgem.

Tomorrow the UCI World Tour peloton will take on the next of the Flanders Classics, Dwars Door Vlaanderen, a race that was cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will be a familiar 184km route, with numerous cobble road climbs in the final half of the race, set to provide the stage for an exciting race.

Team Qhubeka ASSOS will look to take the momentum gained at Gent-Wevelgem, where Giacomo Nizzolo placed 2nd, into Dwars Door Vlaanderen.

The in-form Nizzolo will again lead our lineup, with Dimitri Claeys, Victor Campenaerts, Max Walscheid, Lasse Norman Hansen, Emil Vinjebo and Andreas Stokbro completing our roster.

A big thanks to Rudi Keyser for sending through a video lineup announcement of our Dwars Door Vlaanderen team.

Tomorrow’s race, Dwars Door Vlaanderen, presents us with another opportunity to show our jersey and colours during a key period in the cycling season. The Flanders Classics might use similar roads, but each race has its own unique characteristics, based on where and how frequently the climbs are positioned and also which specific climbs are used. Tomorrow we will have more climbing toward the back end of the race and this should define the outcome of the race.
