After previously bagging Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, a deal to show races including the Tour of Flanders and Amstel Gold has now been reached

Eurosport and GCN have finally confirmed they have reached an agreement to show Flanders Classics races for the next four years.

After extensive negotiations with Swiss company Infront, which has exclusive rights to Flanders Classics races and the Amstel Gold Race, a long-term deal was finally struck, giving Eurosport and GCN permission to broadcast both the men's and women's races in Europe and Asia (excluding China).

That means that, along with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad – for which an agreement was already in place after a last-minute deal before Opening Weekend – you will be able to watch Gent-Wevelgem, Dwars door Vlaanderen, the Tour of Flanders, Scheldeprijs, Brabantse Pijl, Brussels Cycling Classic and the Amstel Gold Race on Eurosport and GCN+.

'We're particularly pleased to further extend our coverage of elite women's races and remain committed to expanding the reach of the sport in all its forms to the widest possible audience,' said director of cycling at Eurosport and GCN Guy Voisin. 

'The men's and women's cycling season has started with a bang with some truly exhilarating races already being shown across our channels and platforms that have delivered some incredible performances from the world's best riders.

'We're looking forward to continuing this on Sunday by showcasing Gent-Wevelgem alongside expert commentary, storytelling and analysis.'
