We're running in continuous mode for the production of contents currently, so once again this publication is done the day of the race itself!

After the Classic Bruges-La Panne, won by Jasper Philipsen, we continue today with another Belgian classic, the E3 Saxo Classic 2024, starting and finishing in Harelbeke. The rest of the program includes Ghent-Wevelgem on Sunday ... before the pressure builds up to the Tour of Flanders the following Sunday!

In this article, you'll find details of the route of the E3 Saxo Classic 2024, on an Open Street Maps map, also available for download in Google Earth, as well as the list of starters in the Belgian race.


The route of the E3 Saxo Classic 2024 on Open Street Maps

After the start in Harelbeke, the race heads east on the upper part of the course, as shown on the map below, heading towards Waregem and Oudenaarde before reaching the first cobbles and climbs (Beaucarnestraat cobbles, the Katteberg and the Holleweg cobbles). This is followed by an easterly loop via Zottegem and Grammont into the cobbles and hills country, with La Houppe, Kanarieberg, Oude Kruisberg, Knokteberg, Hotondberg, Kortekeer, the cobbled Taaienberg and Berg ten Stene, which closes the blue section of the route on the map below.

On the return to Harelbeke, the route continues with the Boigneberg, the Ellestraat, the cobbled Stationsberg, followed by the cobbles of the Mariaborrestraat, the Kapelberg and the cobbled Paterberg, the cobbled Oude Kwaremont, the E3-COL Karnemelbeekstraat, the Varent cobbles and the Tiegemberg, before the return to Harelbeke, where the finish takes place at the same point as the start, in the Stasegemsesteenweg.

The list of starters for the E3 Saxo Classic 2024

The E3 Saxo Classic 2024 will be the first Belgian classic to see Wout van Aert (Team Visma | Lease a Bike) face Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck), so it promises to be a great duel! Unless one of the other 173 (because there are 175 in total) participants walks away with the victory at the end of the afternoon (the finish is scheduled between 4.17pm and 4.55pm, depending on average speed)
