Men Elite race info
As usual, the elite men will start in Leuven. Before the finale erupts on the local loop in and around Overijse, the peloton heads towards Beersel in the first part of the race. In this run-up, the first climbs await, including the Bruineput. The riders then set off towards Overijse, where the vicious climbs that characterise the Brabantse Pijl are to be found. After a first run through Hertstraat, Moskesstraat, Holstheide and S-bocht, no less than 3 local laps await in which the riders will face the challenge of the Hagaard followed by the four aforementioned climbs. After 205 km and 24 climbs, we will know the successor to Magnus Sheffield.
Start: Ladeuzeplein in Leuven – 12:30
Finish: Brusselsesteenweg in Overijse – around 17:23
Distance: 205.1 km

The 2022 Flanders Classics spring ended on a rainy day between Leuven and Overijse. The weather gods combined with the gruelling local loop in and around Overijse made for a tough race. It was Turner and Evenepoel who upped the tempo before the finale had even begun. Evenepoel’s second try was the right one, creating a leading group of 10. The attack attempts could not be counted on one hand. The decision eventually came 3.5 km before the finish line after an acceleration by the 19-year-old Sheffield, who secured victory with a solo in the last kilometres.
