Both the men's and women's peloton will contest yet more cobbled climbs on Sunday, as the next classic in the calendar rolls around:  Gent-Wevelgem.

The men's race covers 249.8 kilometres, whilst the women will compete over 159km, with both races sharing a start in Ypres and finishing in Wevelgem. This will be the first year that the women's route has covered the windy and exposed stretch to De De Moeren, and crested the Kemmelberg not once, but twice.
