There are a total of 127 race kilometres between start location Deinze and finish location Nokere. After the start, the riders ride via Petegem aan de Leie to Kruishoutem, Lozer and Ouwegem, taking a first turn on the Lange Ast. We then head via Huise, Lede, Wannegem, Ooike, Oudenaarde, Elsegem and Kerkhove to the cobbles of the Varent and the Hellestraat - Holstraat combo. Shortly afterwards, we climb Petegemberg (500m at 7.6%) and the Fabriekstraat. Via Moregem and Wortegem, we move on to the first passage in Nokere. Then we will have covered 64.4km and two local laps of 31.3 km await the riders.
That local lap has been modified compared to past editions and spiced up even more with cobblestones! After the Herlegemstraat, we get a longer flat section past Kruishoutem, Lozer, Ouwegem and Huise. From Huise, the cobbles follow each other at a rapid pace. The Lange Aststraat runs 400 metres uphill at 5.2%, shortly followed by the Kloosterstraat, the Doorn, Lededorp, the Huisepontweg and Wannegem-Dorp. After these last cobbles, only 3 km remain, but of course the Nokereberg awaits at the end of the lap.
