Because of the change of date from September to June for the Brussels Cycling Classic, a long weekend of racing awaits Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux in Belgium. Fourteen riders will represent the World Team during this Pentecost weekend in the Heistse Pijl on Saturday, the Brussels Cycling Classic on Sunday and the Ronde van Limburg on Monday.
The triptych is concluded on Pentecost Monday by the Ronde van Limburg (1.1). The course between Hasselt and Tongeren has been remodeled. Two laps containing the Keiberg and the Letenberg have to be covered before concluding with three local laps of 25 kilometer around Tongeren. The Grootloonberg, Kogelstraat, Colenberg and the Kolmontberg precede a slightly uphill finish.
Two riders from Limburg, Quinten Hermans and Gerben Thijssen, will be at the start of the 70th edition, just like their compatriots Baptiste Planckaert (6th in 2016, 8th in 2014) and Kévin Van Melsen, Frenchman Adrien Petit and Dutchmen Taco van der Hoorn and Boy van Poppel (5ème en 2019), who finished eighth in a reduced bunch sprint last year.
