BeNe Ladies Tour Preview (WE 2.1)

The 4th edition of the BeNe Ladies Tour will be held from Thursday, July 13th 2017 until Sunday, July 16th. For its fourth edition the race will be held under UCI WE 2.1 ranking, an upgrade from previous editions held under 2.2 status. Riders will have to cover approximately 350 kilometres throughout its four racing days, including a prologue, an ITT and double-sector stage.

The distinctive feature of this race is that it is held in two countries as its name states, in Belgium and The Netherlands. The first two days will be on Dutch soil whereas the following two will take place on Belgian territory. “Belgian Bullet” Jolien D’hoore (Wiggle-High5) holds the winning record of the race, having won the last two editions. This time D’hoore won’t participate in the race.
