Men Elite race info
In 2023, the Ronde van Vlaanderen returns to Bruges for the first time since 2016. This also means that the route to the Flemish Ardennes is changing. The duo Oude Kwaremont - Paterberg will once again serve as a major obstacle in the full finale. The finish does not change either. Mathieu van der Poel's successor may raise his arms in the air on the Minderbroedersstraat in Oudenaarde.
Start: Grote Markt in Bruges - 10:00
Finish: Minderbroedersstraat in Oudenaarde - around 16:29

After winning in 2020 and finishing second in 2021, Dutchman Mathieu van der Poel recorded his second victory in Flanders’ Finest in 2022. For the third year in a row, the Dutchman had company on the way to the finish line for a two-man sprint. After Wout van Aert and Kasper Asgreen, this time he took on Tadej Pogacar. Just as two years before, it was Van der Poel who came out on top. He held off Van Baarle and Madouas who came up from behind. Pogacar had to settle for fourth place.
