Renewi Tour preview

The 2023 Renewi Tour GC lead has switched hands three times already, with Tim Wellens the only rider to retain it in spite of a flat tyre and a domino trail of crashes. The 32-year-old holds a 23-second lead over his compatriots Florian Vermeersch and Yves Lampaert ahead of Stage 5 on Sunday, 27th August.

Formerly known as the Benelux Tour, and before that the Eneco Tour and BinckBank Tour, the 2023 Renewi Tour marks a fresh start for the stage race, which is apt considering the nature of the sponsor it now takes its name from. 

Cut from seven to five stages in its new guise, Stage 5 ramps things up by squeezing 13 hills into the 187.3km ride from Riemst to Bilzen. They're all short if not particularly sweet, and the pièce de résistance is the Kleiberg, which inclines at 12% at its steepest point and peaks 5km from the finish line.

Hoping to turn blood, sweat and tears into sporting glory are a blend of sprinters and classics specialists, most notably early leader Jasper Philipsen, who has fallen away despite winning Stage 1 and coming third in Stage 4, and Matej Mohoric, who finished second to Sonny Colbrelli the last time the race was held two years ago, and is only 33 seconds off the pace.
