Race

Is the race open for everyone?
The race is open for pro-am racers. So it's open for everyone, but we strongly suggest only to participate if you're a experienced gravel cyclist. 
What will be the race distance?
If you participate in the race you'll ride the 160K route. 
I just wanna participate in the race so my ride is timed.
We suggest to track your ride with strava. It's much more fun to be in the general event when you're not participating in the race for racing. 

Routes

What route are we taking?
Check out the route on this page

The route will be a great mix of Flemish cobbles, unpaved roads, gravel and some tarmac. Since we're in the heart of De Ronde you can expect famous climbs like Koppenberg and Kwaremont too. 
What are the distances I can choose from?
There are three stunning routes, you can choose between 80, 120 and 160K. 

We'll ride in 2 loops: morning loop and afternoon loop. After the morning loop you'lll return to the festival area for a BBQ Burger (it's included). 
Where's the start and finish?
Start will be at De Markt in Oudenaarde.

Finish will be at the summit of Koppenberg. After finishing you go down easy and enjoy the festival at the festival site.
Do I have to pick a distance when I register?
No, you can decide what route you will ride just before you start. Tired after lunch? You can pick the short loop after lunch also. It's all about flexiblity at Flanders Gravel.
Is the route signposted?
Yes the route will be signposted. 
What are DIY routes?
Exclusive for Weekend Warriors we have routes on Friday and Saturday. These routes are not signposted, but will be available on GPS.

Bike

What bike do I need?
Preferably you'll ride on your gravel bike with wide tires (38mm). But a CX or mountainbike is also an option.
Can I rent a bike?
At this moment we don't have a gravel bike rental partner
Why can't I use my road bike?
You'll simply not make it to the finish. Especially when we've had some rain. 

Health

Can anyone join Flanders Gravel?
The organisation recommends everyone not to perform heavy exercise without sufficient physical preparation. Make smart choices in terms of the distance you wish to complete and the pace you want to ride at. Those who want to exercise at a high intensity, with performance in mind, are urged to get a yearly medical check-up by a qualified (sports) physician.

It is not necessary to present medical certificates. It is up to the participant to decide what to do with his or her medical information. As such the organisation is not responsible in this area.
