With no fewer than four new climbs, Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne 2022 will have a unique course. The section running through the Pays-des-Collines in Hainault has been extended, giving the race its own character with both Flemish and Walloon parts.
On the Flemish side, the Oude Kwaremont has been dropped, but don’t imagine that that makes the race any easier. Because in Hainaut a pretty tough trio of climbs is now on the programme. Hameau des Papins, Le Bourliquet and Mont Saint-Laurent may well set the scene for an early selection.
SuIn the finale, the Kruisberg, the Hotond, the Côte du Trieu and the Kluisberg once again make an appearance before the riders head towards the finish via the hilly Sint-Denijs and Bellegem sections.
Alongside the Walloon climbs, the Kattenberg and Berg Ten Houte are also newcomers for Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. We can’t wait to see how our opening classic will unfold this year, after the remarkable ride by Mathieu van der Poel in 2021!
