The men’s distance is 257.7km, with the 30 sectors packed into the final 160km of racing. The women’s race is 116.4km, with the last 85 kilometers being the same for both races.

The two courses converge with 85km to go, after the women race three loops around the start in Denain to warm up the legs. After bypassing the Arenberg forest, the first sector the women tackle is the four-star, 3.7km sector from Hornaing to Wandignies.

From there, the routes are the same all the way to the velodrome, including passages of the iconic sectors at Mons-en-Pévèle and the Carrefour de l’Arbre.
