The Women's WorldTour will roll into Belgium for the mid-week Brugge-De Panne on March 25. The women's field will race 158.8 kilometres along a flat route where there is expected to be a sprint finish on the local circuits in De Panne.

The event is embarking on its fourth edition where top names in the sport - Jolien D'hoore (SD Worx), Kirsten Wild (Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling) and Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM) - have won the previous three editions. The trio is expected to return to the starting line in Brugge to try and win the race for a second time.
