Dwars Door Vlaanderen (HC), Belgium

A travers la Flandre - Across Flanders

Historic podiums, times, distances and average speeds

Dwars door Vlaanderen (English: Across Flanders) is a Flanders Classics road bicycle race. Since 2013 it has been ranked an HC event on the UCI Europe Tour. It is the traditional start of the Flemish cycling week, with Gent–Wevelgem (before 2010 the Brabantse Pijl instead of Gent–Wevelgem), the Three Days of De Panne and the Tour of Flanders.

Dwars door Vlaanderen has traditionally been contested on a Wednesday, a week and a half before the Tour of Flanders with the finish always in Waregem.

The race was first run in 1945 and the race has been held every year since, with the exception of 1971. The race was previously named Dwars door België (English: Across Belgium).

In the years 1945–1946 and 1948–1964, the race was run as a stage-race over two days (1945 doesn't seem to have an overall winner); in 1947 and since 1965, it has been held as a one-day race.
