The Tour of Flanders is one of the highlights on the cycling calendar with the Belgian monument eagerly anticipated by fans and riders alike. Starting in Bruges, the race will cover 18 categorised climbs and seven flat cobbles sectors over 255km before the Oudenaarde finish in 2016. Six riders have won the race on three occasions, Achiel Buysse, Fiorenzo Magni, Eric Leman, Johan Museeuw, Tom Boonen and most recently Fabian Cancellara, with Norway’s Alexander Kristoff the 2015 champion.
