Brabantse Pijl race organisers announced that the Belgian one-day race will start in Leuven for the next five years, moving away from Zaventem, where it had started the last three years. The race will continue to finish in Beersel, near the top of the Alsemberg climb.

Brabantse Pijl, which has been held since 1961, is typically about 200 kilometres long. It will next be held on March 30 in 2008. Oscar Freire of Rabobank has won the race the last three years running, this year ahead of Nick Nuyens.
