Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen to go ahead

Despite the continued snowy weather this week in Belgium, the Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen (March 4-6) will go ahead as planned. "On Thursday everything was free of snow," said organiser Eric Mortelé to Het Nieuwsblad. "Even the two sticking points, the Varentstraat and the Kemmelberg, were no problem. If it snows again, then it can still go wrong and we will have to intervene. But I have a few spotters who will keep me up to date the whole time."

The stages are as follows:

Stage 1 - March 4: Kortrijk - Bellegem, 159 km
Stage 2 - March 5: Handzame, 185.2 km
Stage 3 - March 6: Omloop der Vlaamse Ardennen - Ichtegem, 182.4 km
