Mountain Bike of Flanders – Stage 3

At 70 kilometers, this final stage is a lot shorter than the Saturday stage. But don’t make the mistake of underestimating it! On this stage, you almost never leave the municipal boundaries of Kluisbergen. Those who know this region, know exactly what that means: some serious climbing! While the Paterberg and the ‘old Oude Kwaremont’ are on the menu, these are merely warm-ups for what comes next: via the Pensemont you ride back into the Kluisbos. There awaits every technical mountain bikers dream: 10 kilometers of nonstop technical descents and steep climbs in the woods, a large part of which is on private property.

The best part of all? You’ll get to enjoy all of this not twice, but three times! Our 2021 final stage is a total of three loops for all solo riders. Duo team participants complete two laps each – one lap solo and the last lap together. In this way, you finish the adventure just as you started it on Friday – together!
