With a course stretching over 155 kilometers, from the historic market of Brugge to the finish in the seaside resort of De Panne, this Thursday promises to be a significant challenge for the riders of AG Insurance - Soudal. The race concludes with two local laps of 43.9 kilometers each, leading them to the finish line.

Taking the start for our team will be Gaia Masetti, Kim Le Court, Maud Rijnbeek, Maaike Boogaard, Anya Louw, and Ilse Pluimers.

For AG Insurance - Soudal, Brugge - De Panne is more than just a race; it's a piece of our own history and pride. Jolien D’hoore not only won the inaugural edition in 2018 but also climbed the podium with an impressive third place in 2021. For this edition, Jolien takes on the role of the tactical brain behind the wheel of the team car.

“I always look forward to Brugge - De Panne with great enthusiasm, a race that has always been close to my heart as a rider, especially since I've won it myself. The dynamics of the echelons make it particularly exciting; I'm hoping for a lot of wind in the Moeren for a real battle and a spectacular race. My eyes are especially on Kim Le Court, who recently showed her strength in the Trofeo Alfredo Binda. I'm curious to see how she and the rest of the team will tackle the challenge of the echelons. Despite the loss of Marthe, who unfortunately fell in Nokere, we have a strong core of hard workers and team players with Maud, Ilse, Gaia, and Anja. I have every confidence that we will perform strongly as a team. I'm really curious to see what awaits us in the Moeren, by the coast, in the wind”, said Jolien.
