The 2024 ZLM Omloop der Kempen Ladies race will take place in the scenic region of North Brabant in the Netherlands. This event, which has a rich history dating back to 1997, has undergone several name changes over the years. Initially known as the ‘GP Van der Heijden’ and later the ‘GP Sankomij Veldhoven’, it adopted its current name in recent years. Since 2022, the race has been classified as a UCI 1.2 event, reflecting its surprisingly heavy-hitting honour roll of past winners.

The race has seen numerous notable winners and big names such as Leontien van Moorsel, Iris Slappendel, Annemiek van Vleuten, Marianne Vos, and Lorena Wiebes have all competed in this event, adding to its prestige. Their achievements in this race have often been a prelude to their success on the world stage, highlighting the competitive nature and importance of the Omloop der Kempen in nurturing top talent for the women’s peloton.

The course of the ZLM Omloop der Kempen is known for its challenging yet varied terrain. It typically includes flat sections, cobblestone stretches, and occasional rolling hills. Nothing too major in the gradients but just enough to be considered gently rolling terrain. This combination requires riders to demonstrate both physical strength and strategic thinking, making the race a rigorous test of their abilities. The route winds through charming Dutch villages and countryside, offering a picturesque backdrop for the race.
