Mountain Bike of Flanders – Stage 3

For those who like technical descents and steep forest roads, the Sunday ride will be just what you were waiting for: as a climax, we offer you, just like last year, a short but particularly spicy final stage on the last day, in which you will barely leave the Kluisbos. Don’t be fooled by the modest distance of our final ride: more than 1,500 altitude metres were crammed into less than 60 kilometres!

First there is a safe start climb, followed by a wide gravel road to stretch out the peloton – the same start strip will also be there on Saturday. Afterwards, private single tracks and the most beautiful public roads are strung together, including the now iconic passage to the crashed fighter plane. Not once, not twice, but three times, just like in 2022! And this is not only for solo participants, but also for duos, because they ride the entire three-day event together, and no longer in a relay system.

At the end, our coveted finisher’s shirt awaits all participants who have successfully completed the entire three-day event! And oh, one more thing: this year we did order good weather for our final stage 😉
