The Bredene Koksijde Classic 2019 takes place on March 22, 2019, two days after Nokere Koerse. Bredene Koksijde is most likely better known as the Handzame Classic. Not only did they change the name of the race, also the parcours is different. The race over 199.52 kilometers starts in Bredene and ends up in the coastal town Koksijde.
The predictions in Table 1 are based on Zweeler points for the Bredene Koksijde Classic game (so you do not see e.g. probabilities). In this game 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 20th of March from Zweeler.
