"With a very strong field on the start line, our boys will need to be punching above their weight, but it has happened often in past editions of this race that an underdog has taken a ’surprise’ victory."

Dwars door Vlaanderen is a prestigious semi-classic and build-up for the big monuments Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix. The 200 kilometer long course through the cobbled landscape of Flanders is for the big motors of the peloton. Last year’s winner of Paris-Roubaix, Niki Terpstra also won last year’s edition of Dwars door Vlaanderen. In 2011, Nick Nuyens won the race and a few days later conquered the Ronde van Vlaanderen as well. The race has been on the calendar since 1945 and only on 5 occasions, it hasn’t been won by a Belgian or Dutch rider. The most stunning thing is that Eddy Merckx never won it.


CULT Energy Pro Cycling will be taking on the historically challenging race and are on the start line with Fabian Wegmann, Russell Downing, Alex Kirsch, Mads Pedersen, Martin Mortensen, Michael Reihs, Rasmus Quaade and Troels Vinther.
DS Luke Roberts says:

 

“Dwars door Vlaanderen is a very historical race. It includes many of the famous Belgian climbs and cobblestone sectors, although it is probably not renowned as one of the harder Belgian classics. With a very strong field on the start line, our boys will need to be punching above their weight, but it has happened often in past editions of this race that an underdog has taken a ’surprise’ victory. We will be out there doing our best to upset the big players.”
