The GP Eco-Struct, a relatively new fixture in the professional cycling calendar, has rapidly evolved from a national-level race to a prominent UCI 1.1 event in 2020, since then the race has secured itself a place in the calendar whilst many in the women’s peloton are racing at the Vuelta Femenina. Situated in East Flanders, this Belgian race, with its straightforward parcours, has become a beacon for teams looking to showcase their skills on a flat course that should end up in a sprint.

Taking place in the towns of Wetteren and Schellebelle, the GP Eco-Struct quickly has built up a decent winner’s list, featuring the likes of world champion Amalie Dideriksen, Lorena Wiebes and Charlotte Kool. The race’s design – 6 laps followed by a sprint finish allows teams to establish control before delivering their leader to the line. There’s no major climb on the lap but the elevation reaches its highest each lap as the peloton enters Wetteren again.

Previous winner Amalie Dideriksen looks to be coming back to try and retain her title in 2024 but there won’t be a return for Charlotte Kool (racing the Vuelta Femenina) and Lorena Wiebes (team not entered). Instead, there will be Chiara Consonni racing for the first time. The Italian recently took her first win of the season at the GP della Liberazione PINK.
