Why on earth did they have to put it on a Friday  :angry It used to be on a Saturday.


In 2016 you only had 23 non-asphalt kilometers (10 on cobbles and 13 on gravel). In 2017 you had 30 kilometers (25 on gravel and 5 on cobbles). http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=8393.30
I don't remember about last year but this year, there will be 17 sections for a grand total of 39 kilometers non-asphalt.  :cool

Addition to last year's route are the Prinsenbos in Scherpenheuvel and the Demerpad from Langdorp to Aarschot.

Dwars door het Hageland will be the first European race to use the "track and trace" locator system to know exactly where the riders are :cool
