2020 Women’s Spring Classics Race Dates and Favourites
February 12, 2020
Just like the men’s peloton, in the early part of 2020, there are a collection of races known as the spring classics. The women’s cycling calendar loosely follows the men’s, however, there are some differences. There’s no women’s Milan San Remo for instance. But they do have their own well-established Italian classic in Alfredo Binda. No Kuurne Brussels Kuurne either, Omloop van het Hageland is the women’s equivalent. And so on and so on!
Lots of different road surfaces are covered though. Some are on regular roads, one takes place on white gravel roads and all of them have some brutal hills involved. I’ve previously made the trip to Belgium to see and report on a few races like Gent -Wevelgem and the Tour of Flanders.
I’ve also been able to experience some of the cobbled sections and climbs that make up the toughest sections of these races. Listed are all the other main races that make up the Women’s Spring Classics period.
