the path and all the walls. Decisive Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg – OA Sport

The Tour of Flanders 2021 will unfold along a 255-kilometer route, which from Antwerp leads to Oudenaarde, rich, as usual, with cobbled walls. The first roughness will be tackled at kilometer 101 and it is the Katteberg. Subsequently, twenty kilometers later, the group will climb, for the first time, theOld Kwaremont. Between kilometer 131 and kilometer 165, the race will go live and the group will find, in order, Kortekeer, Eikenberg, Wolvenberg, Molenberg, Marlboroughstraat, Berendries e Valkenberg.

Ten kilometers without walls will start from here, leading to the entrance to the Berg Ten Houte. Immediately after this ascent, the runners will also have to face the Kanarieberg. At kilometer 200 it will be the turn of theOld Kwaremont, which, however, this time will also be followed by the deadly Paterberg.

At kilometer 210 the athletes will face the toughest slope of the Tour of Flanders, the real monster of this race, namely Koppenberg. The wall in question appeared on the Ronde track in 1976 and went down in history for forcing a certain Eddy Merckx to get off his bike and do it on foot.

After the Koppenberg, there will be five more walls to go to the finish. The athletes, therefore, will face, in order, Steenbeekdries e Taaienberg. So, it will be the turn of the Kruisberg / Hotond. Finally, the pairing will close the sequence again Oude Kwaremont-Paterberg, which has been the decisive point of the route of the Tour of Flanders since 2012.
