There is Saturday, march 3, again an edition of the Flemish Arrow in and around Harelbeke driven. The restart was Monday night explained at a press conference in the city hall of Harelbeke. The first edition of the Flemish Arrow dates back to 1968. Only in 2005 and 2017 had the match not take place.

The Flemish Arrow made since 2014 part of the Three days of West-Flanders. Harelbeke was in 2014, 2015 and 2016 invariably, the arrival of the first ride in line. When the race in 2017 ceased to exist, names of the organizers of the Flemish Arrow a sabbatical year.

On march 3, drive the riders from Harelbeke to Moult, where with the Kluisberg, the first climb of the day awaits. This is followed by the Côte de Trieu, Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Varent and the fox’s cave to return to the Ies in Harelbeke to draw where the place is. The Flemish Arrow “Memorial Philippe Vandendorpe” could go back to his roots, with a one day race for promises (cat 1.2). The last winner of this race was the Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen.
