With no mountains but plenty of climbing, especially in the early stages, this race is more suited to the 'classic' type of rider, i.e. those who can power over short hills and pack a good sprint at the end.

The six tough stages offer a variety of challenges from the first two very lumpy days to the cobbles on stage four then the multiple vicious inclines of stage five, the Queen stage. 

Key riders to look out for from the big World Tour teams will be Kasper Asgreen (Soudal Quick-Step), Sam Bennett (Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale Team), John Degenkolb (Team dsm-firmenich PostNL), Pascal Ackermann (Israel-Premier Tech) and Anthony Turgis (TotalEnergies) but there are are also a host of smaller teams here to shake things up.

Teams like TdT-Unibet, Van Rysel-Roubaix and the British development team Trinity Racing will all be keen to mix it with the likes of Cofidis and FDJ and show what they are made off.

In emphatic style Sam Bennett (Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale) attacked on the final climb of Mont Cassel and resplendent in the leaders Pink Jersey took his third win of the race and extended his lead in the overall rankings. 

Clearly the man on form and bursting with confidence he was the strongest of the small group of five riders who managed to break clear and easily won the sprint to the line. 

The final stage around Dunkirk will suit him to the ground and could see him take an unprecedented 4 stage wins out of six.

4 Jours de Dunkerque 2024 route

Stage one takes the riders on a 173km journey from Dunkirk to Le Touquet where it will finish with three laps of a 10.4km circuit. The hilly route takes in four significant climbs, Le Ventus d’Alembon (Km 51), Preures (Km 102), Escrange (Km 108.9) and Bezinghem (Km 110,6) so it’s a far from flat route until the final 40km. 

Stage two has event more small hills as it travels south on the 184km between Wimereux and Abbeville. Although by no definition mountains the five key climbs of Huplandre (Km 25,3), Le Haut Pichot (Km 45,3), Frencq (Km 52.5), Quesnoy Le Montant (Km 130.1) and finally Moyenneville (km 141,2) should be decisive in deciding the outcome of the day.

After two lumpy days stage three is a true sprint day from Saint-Laurent-Blangy to Bouchain so expect all breaks to be controlled and a mass gallop at the end. 

Stage four is even flatter than stage three with just 611m elevation gained over 171km so is likely to be another sprint stage. The final part of the stage is run over four 22km laps which each include a small climb and two sectors of cobbles. 

Stage five is the Queen stage and it is Brutal. The 179km route from Argues to Cassel climbs 2,606m and culminates in 8 laps of the small finishing circuit. On each of these eight laps the riders must tackle multiple short sharp climbs which means it will be a real war of attrition.

The race finishes with stage 6 an almost pan flat journey to and from Dunkirk and a third chance for the sprinter to shine.
