Where: Netherlands and Belgium When: August 31- September 6 2020 Rank: UCI WorldTour
The BinckBank Tour – formerly known as the Eneco Tour – is a WorldTour-level week-long race incorporating stages in both the Netherlands and Belgium. In 2019, it takes place between August 12-18.
Thanks to its undulating terrain, its short, steep hills and cobbled sections, the BinckBank Tour already has the feel of the spring Classic that spring forgot; often featuring roads used in famous one-day races such as the Amstel Gold Race, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Tour of Flanders. As a result, it produces winners that wouldn’t usually be tipped for WorldTour stage races.
This race often attracts the biggest Classics names, this year may see less big names as it is on at the same time as the Tour de France. But some Classics riders not selected for the Tour will likely race.
