OPQS to Handzame Classic

Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team has announced the selection that will take part in the Handzame Classic on March 15th. The race will include an adjusted parcour due to inclement weather.

“In Belgium it is not currently the best weather because of snow and cold,” Sport Director Rik Van Slycke said. “The race organizers decided they will maintain the total distance of 185km, but change the first part of the race. We will start in a different city, ride 35km, then enter a 10 lap circuit of 15km for a total of 185km. There are no longer the climbs this year, as they are no longer possible due to the weather. So, very likely this will end in a sprint, but you never know with these weather conditions. We will do our best to get a good result with the changes that have been made.”
