Dwars door West-Vlaanderen 2018 Preview

Dwars door West-Vlaanderen Johan Museeuw Classic not to be confused with the Dwars door Vlaanderen (which will take place later this month on March 28) is a 1.1 race across the West Flanders region. It starts in Vismijn van Nieuwpoort and will take the peloton over 189.3 kilometres of terrain with passages in Middelkerke, Gistel, Diksmuide and Ieper and its Ypres Salient battlefields to finish in the ‘Heuvelland’.

The main challenge of the day will come in the form of the Kemmelberg, arriving after 73 kilometers of racing. This will be followed by the Rodeberg, Westouter, Poperinge and Kortemark. Not dissimilar in format to Le Samyn, the route will join a circuit after 137.3 kilometers. The race will finish with four laps of 13 kilometers, featuring two cobblestone sections and the ascent of the Keiberg and Catteberg climbs.
