The blue loop (78km) is the shortest of the three on offer from the Centrum Ronde Van Vlaanderen, but this by no guarantees an easy day in the saddle. It's Parcours is a circuit around the finale of the Ronde beginning with the classic trio of the Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg and Koppenberg. If you've still got the legs you'll continue on to the Taaienberg, Kruisberg and Hotondberg before returning to Oudenaarde.
