SAFETY PRIORITY ON THE TOUR OF FLANDERS
The country will come to a standstill on Sunday 4 April. With the Tour of Flanders, the second of the absolute top five cycling classics (Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Tour of Lombardy) is on the agenda next Sunday. “Flanders Most Beautiful” is the climax of the cycling season!
At the start in Antwerp, the world top of global cycling jostles to descend at a fast pace to the Flemish Ardennes. The rapid succession of the many (cobblestone) slopes and the legendary passages over the Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg makes the Tour of Flanders one of the most spectacular and exciting cycling events of the year!
And for a world-class cycling race like this, safety is paramount. That is why the organization partners with BOPLAN® to secure critical points on the course. BOPLAN® RACE TOTEMs are used to remotely signal potential dangers such as refuge islands and road narrows. The BOPLAN® RACE BARRIERs secure the finish area.
Also curious who will be the first to cross the line in Oudenaarde on Sunday?
Will Mathieu van der Poel win for the 2nd consecutive time? Or will it be Wout van Aert who will stand on the highest scaffold? Or Julian Alaphilippe? Or Kasper Asgreen? Or... well, the list of potential winners is again very long this year...
