When you think Flanders Classics, you think the traditional classic spring races in Flanders. Since 2010, this Belgian company has organised the prestigious and well-known Tour of Flanders as well as Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, the opening race of the spring season.
Flanders Classics is also involved in the organisation of four other renowned Flemish springtime races: Dwars Door Vlaanderen, Gent-Wevelgem, Scheldeprijs Schoten and the Brabantse Pijl.
Flanders Classics’ mission is to secure the position of the Flemish spring classic on the international cycling calendar and to increase the prestige of Flemish cycling in Belgium and abroad. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Dwars door Vlaanderen owe their inclusion in the WorldTour calendar to this philosophy. As a result, Flanders Classics now organises four WorldTour races, including the equally prestigious Tour of Flanders and Gent-Wevelgem.
