The 100th edition of the Tour of Flanders took place on Sunday 3 April 2016.
The race between Bruges and Oudenaarde, with a total distance of 255 kilometres (158 mi), covered 18 categorized climbs and seven flat cobblestoned sectors. The principal favourites for the overall victory were Fabian Cancellara, Tom Boonen and Peter Sagan.
