Tour of Flanders - Ronde van Vlaanderen - Tour des Flandres
(World Tour)

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

Complete results for every edition

The Ronde van Vlaanderen is the most important race on the Belgian calendar and one of the single-day monuments in cycling that alone can make the winner's career a success. Originally run from Gent to Gent, it currently starts in Bruges and finishes in Meerbeke. The route is characterized by a series of short, sharp, cobbled climbs, in 2009 totaling 17.

It used to be held on the same day as Italy's Milan-San Remo, which is why there is only one pre-World War Two foreign winner, Heiri Sutter (Switzerland). It was held in early April with Gent-Wevelgem coming a few days later (until 2010) with Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. Now Gent Wevelgem precedes "De Ronde". This makes for a glorious couple of weeks of racing with 3 major and terribly difficult single-day races stacked into a very short period.
