One of the most famous midweek Semi-Classics, Gent-Wevelgem takes its place in the race calendar with prestigious company, sandwiched between The Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. It's the cross-winds, cobbles and the significant climbs of the Monteberg and Kemmel that really shape this race and this year the parcours sticks to its traditional path.
The big names will have their eyes on the races either side of this one, but there's enough prestige here and enough class in the peloton that it's rarely anything less than exciting.
