The 103rd edition of the Tour of Flanders (Dutch: Ronde van Vlaanderen) was held on 7 April 2019 in Belgium. It was the 14th event of the 2019 UCI World Tour and the second monument classic of the season, following Milan-San Remo.[1] The race was won by Italian rider Alberto Bettiol (EF Education First Pro Cycling).[2]

The race started in Antwerp and finished in Oudenaarde, covering 267 kilometres (166 mi). It featured 17 categorized climbs and five flat sectors of cobbled roads.[3] Dutch rider Niki Terpstra won the previous edition in 2018.[4]

Unfortunately, Terpstra crashed out this year in a multiple bike pile-up early in the race. He appeared to be unconscious for more than a minute, was ultimately taken to hospital and forced to abandon the race.

Teams

As the Tour of Flanders was a UCI World Tour event, all eighteen UCI WorldTeams were invited automatically and obliged to enter a team in the race. Seven UCI Professional Continental teams competed, completing the 25-team peloton.[5]
