The Muur: Gone But Not Forgotten

Mar 31, 2020

The Muur van Geraardsbergen is one of pro cycling's most iconic climbs, a cobblestone beast with a chapel at its summit. For decades, the climb played a decisive role in the finale of the Tour of Flanders. But when the race's route was revamped in 2012, the Muur was removed—prompting outrage amongst pro cycling's most ardent fans.

We ride the Muur ourselves to discover what makes the climb so mythical, and recount the hill's most dramatic moments in the Tour of Flanders.
