The third race in the Flemish cycling week is the 78th Dwars door Vlaanderen featuring 12 of the famous Belgian climbs or 'Hellingen' as they are known along its 188 kilometre course. Starting in Roeselare and ending some four hours later in Waregem, it's a classic in its own right and also the last time the riders will have to prepare in race conditions before the final showdown at the Tour of Flanders on Sunday. 

Read on and we'll show you how to watch Dwars door Vlaanderen 2024 live streams from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.

Although not as hilly as either the E3 Saxo bank Classic or the Tour of Flanders the route of Dwars door Vlaanderen does feature 12 evil climbs such as the Volkegemberg, the Knokteberg, Ladeuze and the Nokerberg. Together with these 12 'Hellingen' there are also eight nightmarish flat cobblestone sectors for the riders to negotiate as they criss-cross the Flanders fields on the incredibly difficult route.  

Although historically a sprinters race Dwars door Vlaanderen has lately gone in favour of punchy, attacking type riders such as last year's winner Christophe Laporte (Team Visma / Lease a Bike). Unfortunately Laporte is sick so won't be able to defend his title meaning the onus will be on his team mate Wout Van Aert to do the business. 

There are plenty of others riders who would love to add a victory here to their palmarès and leading the attack will be Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin - Deceuninck), Mads Pedersen (Lidl - Trek) who won Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday and Stefan Küng (Groupama - FDJ).

Simon Warren has been obsessed with cycling since the summer of 1989 after watching Greg Lemond battle Laurent Fignon in the Tour de France. Although not having what it took to beat the best, he found his forte was racing up hills and so began his fascination with steep roads. This resulted in his 2010’s best-selling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, followed to date by 14 more guides to vertical pain. Covering the British Isles, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain he has been riding and racing up hills and mountains for over 30 years now. He hosts talks, guides rides, has written columns for magazines and in 2020 released his first book of cycling routes, RIDE BRITAIN. Simon splits his time between working as a graphic designer and running his 100 Climbs brand and lives in Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District with his wife and two children.
