  1. E3 Saxo Classic 2024, one day classic, March 22

    The old gang is back, fresh from Milano Sanremo. This time it's Wout's turn, as Pog is racing in Catlunya. He and MVDP will battle it out on the cobbled climbs. For the last two editions it was Wout who has won it, can he do a hattrick? Notable all-rounder: Wout, MVDP, Hirschi, Mohoric, Kung...
  2. Kuurne - Bruxelles - Kuurne 2024, February 25, one-day classic

    Basically comes just after Omloop, with mostly the same protagonists. In the past even sprinters could win, bu usually it's the stong riders. So it's a double weekend for Wout and company. Notable mentions: Wout, Philipsen, De Lie, Mohoric, Laporte, Benoot, Demare, Kristoff, Wellens, Trentin...
  3. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2024, February 24, one-day classic (men's)

    The first of the big classics. Cobblestones, steep climbs, crazy fans, what's not to like. A big test for Wout, but MVDP is waiting for San Remo for his start of the season. Notable mentions: Wout, Philipsen, De Lie, Mohoric, Laporte, Pidcock, Benoot, Kung, Alaphilippe, Wellens, Trentin...
  4. Tour of Slovenia 2023, June 14 - June 18

    More hot racing this year. Last two editions were won by Pogacar. This year because of the broken wrist he will not participate. But that opens the up to some actual competition! Notable GC mentions: Ulissi, Fortunato, Mohoric, Zanna, Wellens Notable sprinters: Groenewegen, Molano, Bauhaus...
  5. Strade Bianche 2023, March 4, one-day classic (men's & women's)

    The best non-monument race, which should by now be a monument. It's always exciting and hard racing, with lots of gravel and climbing. Wout and Pog won't be here unfortunately, so can anyone beat Matthieu Van Der Poel? Notable mentions: MVDP, Bilbao, Vlasov, Mohoric, Pidcock, Sheffield, Benoot...
