Opening Weekend – Preview | Cyclingnews


A year on from the Opening Weekend which marked the beginning of a Classics season that wouldn’t finish until eight months later, hopes are that the 2021 editions of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne herald the start of an unbroken spring Classics campaign through to Paris-Roubaix in mid-April.

The weekend double of Omloop and Kuurne traditionally comes over one weekend in late February or early March, and it’s no different this year. For some, the races mark the start of the ‘real’ racing season, and this year it’s truer than ever amid the swathe of early-season race cancellations.
