Dwars door West-Vlaanderen (1.1)

Formerly: Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen,

Belgium

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

The Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen (in English: 3 Days of West Flanders) is a 3-day Belgian stage race held in early March. It is also now known as the Johan Museeuw Classics. The race dates back to 1945 when it was known as the Omloop der Vlaamse Ardennen (Tour of the Flemish Ardennes).

Between 1999 and 2002 it was called Guldensporentweedaagse. Say that really fast 5 times. Riders use it to prepare for the Classics season. With its generous use of cobbled roads and its (usually) brutal Flemish spring weather, its a perfect training course for those with Flanders or Paris–Roubaix ambitions. With it prestigious 2.1 ranking, it attacts a fine field.

In earlier incarnations of the race, winners have included Marcel Kint, Raymond Impanis, Eric De Vlaeminck, Patick Sercu, Frans Verbeeck and Johan Museeuw.

In 2017, the race became a single-day event-renamed Dwars Door West-Vlaanderen
