We're deep into cobbled Classics season now and the men's Gent-Wevelgem and Gent-Wevelgem Women are next on the menu on Sunday, March 26.

The two races are based around the famous Kemmelberg cobbled climb, offering a chance for glory for the sprinters and Classics specialists alike. It's another major stop on the road to the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix and one of the premier races of the spring calendar.

Reigning champions Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Circus-Wanty) and Elisa Balsamo (Trek-Segafredo) will be back to defend their titles in Flanders on Sunday afternoon and plenty more Classics stars will be joining them at the start to battle for victory.

The men's race will see Classics men including Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Mads Pedersen (Bahrain Victorious) and Matej Mohorič (Bahrain Victorious) mix it up with sprinters including Fabio Jakobsen (Soudal-QuickStep), Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck), and Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe).

Meanwhile, Gent-Wevelgem Women will welcome stars including Lorena Wiebes, Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx), Marta Bastianelli (UAE Team ADQ), Grace Brown (FDJ-Suez), Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-Sram), and Shirin van Anrooij (Trek-Segafredo).
