Bigla to race Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad kicks off the Belgian road season on Saturday. This year marks the fourteenth edition of the elite women’s race. The 123km-long course meanders between Ghent and Ninove and features 5 cobblestone sections and 10 climbs, including the famous Molenberg and the Muur. The race was revamped last year to include a hillier route, adding two hellingen and also two cobbled sectors. The finale is quite explosive, including ascents of the Muur and Bosberg before the finish that runs into Ninove.

Taking to the start in Ghent for Bigla will be:

  • Elizabeth Banks
  • Nicole Hanselmann
  • Mikayla Harvey
  • Maria Vittoria Sperotto
  • Leah Thomas
