With the spring Classics season in full swing, Wednesday's Dwars door Vlaanderen is the final Flemish race before Sunday's cobbled Monument at the Tour of Flanders.

The men's and women's races provide one last chance for riders to hone their form and test themselves ahead of the big one at the weekend, while also being important races in their own right.

Some of the biggest cobbled Classics favourites are absent from the start list, but plenty of top riders will still be lining up to take on the last challenge before Flanders.

In the men's race, major names include Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck), Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo), Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma), Arnaud De Lie (Lotto-Dstny), Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers), and Julian Alaphilippe (Soudal-QuickStep).

The women's start list is headlined by Demi Vollering (SD Worx), Liane Lippert (Movistar), Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (Groupama-FDJ), Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), and Ashleigh Moolman (AG Insurance-Soudal-QuickStep).

The riders will tackle a decent selection of cobbles and climbs during Wednesday's races, with the Knokteberg, Marieborrestraat, and Nokereberg all on the menu.
