It makes for a very popular race within the pro peloton as many look to race on home roads and seize the good weather, in a race that sees usually many mountainous and hilly stages.

It is one of the oldest stage-races in the calendar and usually has a set of stages through the region, bringing in many stage-racers and riders eyeing the Ardennes classics whilst the classics riders and sprinters are over in Belgium for the classics campaign.
