De Brabantse Pijl 2019 Predictions

The 58th De Brabantse Pijl is the first of a series of hills classics. The 196.2 kilometers long race starts in Leuven and finishes in Overijse and features in total 31 hills to conquer.

The predictions for the De Brabantse Pijl can be found in Table 1 and are based on Zweeler game points (so you do not see e.g. probabilities). In the Zweeler game’s riders score points by ending up in the top 25 of a race. The first place is good for 120 points, the 25th spot yields just 1 point. Points scored as overall winner (separate prediction) are not included. Since it is a single race game more expected points indeed mean a higher probability of winning. Furthermore, keep in mind that:

  • Our predictions are based on quantitative models and are presented in hard tables instead of stories.
  • We are continuously improving our prediction models and some type of predictions may be better than others (especially the classics/single day race algorithms have room for improvement).
  • Always combine these cycling predictions with other information.
  • The predictions are generated for the riders on the startlist that we downloaded the 16th of April from Zweeler.
