The Climbs of Omloop het Nieuwsblad – Men’s & Women’s Races

Omloop het Nieuwsblad has been the start of the Spring Classics season for a while now. Even when known as Omloop het Volk it usually took pride of place in the opening weekend with Kuurne Brussels Kuurne. Given the race takes part in West Flanders, there’s a fair amount of crossover with the climbs of the Tour of Flanders. However it does use some climbs that De Ronde doesn’t and vice versa. The biggest change to Omloop het Nieuwsblad in recent years is that the race no longer starts and finishes in Ghent. The race finish briefly went to Meerbeke but currently is in Ninove. That has brought the Muur van Geraardsbergen and Bosberg back into play and seen some of the other Flandrian climbs fall out of use. As a result, only the Molenberg has featured in every recent edition of the men’s and women’s Omloop het Nieuwsblad.

I’ve struggled to find routes that mention all of the climbs used for women’s races earlier than 2013. So their use count is from 2013-2021 inclusive. Men’s races are 2010-2021 inclusive.
