The 2020 Classics season is almost under way, with 'Opening Weekend' kicking off the action. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad was first up on Saturday, while Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne follows on Sunday. Next up is Le Samyn, which follows on Tuesday.

Once again, Cyclingnews will be bringing you reports, interviews, results and news throughout the Classics, starting with Saturday's race. Read on to find out how to watch Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN.

The big openers for the spring Classics season, almost every big-name Classics rider has converged on Belgium this weekend for Omloop and Kuurne. Saturday's winner Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) will start at Kuurne, as will runner-up Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-QuickStep), world champion Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) and Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team).

Be sure to look out for Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates), Oliver Naesen (AG2R La Mondiale), Matteo Trentin (CCC Team) too.

Other big names on the start list include Tiesj Benoot (Team Sunweb), Nils Politt (Israel Start-Up Nation), Sep Vanmarcke (EF Pro Cycling), Zdenek Štybar (Deceuninck-QuickStep), John Degenkolb (Lottto Soudal) and Niki Terpstra (Total Direct Énergie).

The Kuurne course gets a revamp for 2020, with a different selection of climbs coming in the mid-race section. Nokereberg and Tiegemberg are gone, for example, while the Kanarieberg-Kruisberg-Hotond trio come later on and Oude Kwaremont is the penultimate berg of the day.

The 203km-course, which features 11 hills and five cobbled sectors, still ends with a flat run-in though, with the final 50km not containing any major obstacles.
