Deze klim kan je ook wel het kleine irritante broertje noemen van de smeysberg. Is op buitenblad te doen maar dan ga je het eerste deel van de klim zeker goed afzien. Eens het eerste deel voorbij is het kwestie van bijschakelen om snelheid te maken. Zeker een aanrader als de smeys niets voor jou is.

It is a climb located directly opposite the Smeysberg. It has been part of the final circuit of the Flèche brabançonne for a few years. In the last two editions, it came directly after the Moskesstraat and thus completed the work of undermining the cobbled wall. The Holstheide itself is not a thunderbolt: well surfaced, not very steep but quite long and pleasant, winding through a rural environment. Several times I saw pheasants crossing the road, without hurrying...

C'est une ascension située directement en vis-à-vis du Smeysberg. Elle fait partie du circuit final de la Flèche brabançonne depuis quelques années. Lors des deux dernières éditions, elle venait directement après la Moskesstraat et donc permettait d'achever le travail de sape entamé dans ce mur pavé. En elle-même la Holstheide n'est pas un foudre de guerre : bien revêtue, pas très pentue mais assez longue et agréable, sinuant dans un milieu champêtre. Il m'est arrivé plusieurs fois d'y voir des faisans traverser la chaussée, sans se presser…

Beautiful climb, good asphalt and nice and clear. So it is a good descent if you come from such smeysberg.

Mooie beklimming, goed asfalt en lekker overzichtelijk. Waardoor het een goeie afdaling is als je vanuit bijvoorbeeld de smeysberg komt.

A beautifull climb that is worth doing, the road is good, u travel past a few fields (with most of the time sheep in it) and through a little forest after that. The hardest part is in the beginning, as soon as u are past the forest the gradients become much easier, if u have a little left in the tank, attack here!
