The Volkegemberg was included 17 times (1974-1984, 1991-1996) in the Tour of Flanders. Until 1982 the slope consisted entirely of cobblestone road, after that it became an asphalt road with another 200 meters of cobblestone at the top. At the moment in the race the riders descend this slope and make a right turn at the foot to start the climb of the Wolvenberg.
