Gent-Wevelgem 2021

The 2021 Gent–Wevelgem is a one-day cycling race that is scheduled to be held on 28 March 2021 in Belgium. It will be the 83rd edition of Gent–Wevelgem and the nineteenth event of the 2021 UCI World Tour. The race is generally run as race class 1.UWT.

It is considered one of the Spring Classics and part of the Flemish Cycling Week, which usually takes place at the end of March on the last Sunday before the Flanders Tour.

Even though the race is usually referred to as a sprinters classic because of its flat finishing scenery, its early-season date means that riders are often challenged by wind and rain, as well as many hilly climbs, including two climbs of the steep and entirely cobbled Kemmelberg. As a result, few Gent-Wevelgem editions actually finish with a bunch of sprints- frequently the winner comes from a small group of escapees.

The Route

Gent-Wevelgem runs west into West Flanders and Northern France and has a few mountainous areas, giving it a distinct character and making it more suitable for riders, unlike many Flemish spring classics based on Oudenaarde and the abundant hills in the Flemish Ardennes. The overall distance of the race covers nearly 250 km in recent years.

The race has started in Deinze, East Flanders, 15 kilometers southwest of Ghent since 2004. Through an unofficial start at the city's Market Square, the trail goes west facing 100 kilometers across the wind-swept flatlands of West Flanders, as much as along the North Sea coast, before heading south into the North Department of France. The cobbled Kasselberg climb in Cassel comes after 120 km, which is discussed twice in fast succession. The race returns to Belgium after the Katsberg, the second hill in France, after 50 kilometers (31 mi) on French roads to join the main segment of the competition in Heuvelland.

The three climbs including the Baneberg, Monteberg, and Kemmelberg cover the mountainous region in the very south of West Flanders within twelve kilometers of one another. Kemmelberg is the race's hardest and most popular climb.

The course circles around and sprinters re-ascend the Baneberg-Monteberg-Kemmelberg series after these three bergs, covering a total of nine categorized climbs. The course invariably follows a long and flat run-in to Wevelgem after the top of the final Kemmelberg ascent, some 35 kilometers from the end. The race ends at Wankekerest, the central road of Waveljem.

Every year lots of teams and riders take part in this competition. The race is really run through a great challenge. All the riders and teams try with their best to win first position but ultimately who the winner is, seen in the finish of the race. Here the expected competing teams are included:
