The second race of cycling's ‘opening weekend’ double header is Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. Although crossing a host of the infamous Hellingen early on, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne is more tailored towards the sprinters than those who thrive on the cobbled climbs as the last real ascent comes a good 60 kilometres from the line. 

To make sure said sprinter's legs are sufficiently tired before the end though they will have to amongst others take on the Kluisberg, Cote du Trieu, the Kruisberg, La Houppe, the Volkegemberg and the Tiegemberg. With the climbs well behind them, the riders left in the race will then head to Kuurne for one and a half laps of the traditional finishing circuitwhich will decide the winner.

The hot favourite for the win will be Belgian's Wout van Aert who will line up with other stars such as Arnaud Demare (Arkea -B&B Hotels), Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Victorious), Jasper Stuyven (Lidl-Trek), Kasper Asgreen (Soudal-Quick Step), Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) and Alexander Kristoff (Uno-X Mobility). 

After 'Domestique' Jan Tratnik's win yesterday can anyone stop team Visma - Lease a Bike winning again today. Such is their strength in depth they will be hot favourites to make it a double on opening weekend for the second year in a row.
