The Nieuwe Kwaremont was together with the Tiegemberg the only slope in the Tour of Flanders from 1919 to 1927. Until 1965, the Kwaremont consisted entirely of cobblestones. From 1965-1966 (The reason why it was not included in the Rond van Vlaanderen in 1966) the slope was asphalted. The slope now became a simple obstacle for the riders. In 1973, the Oude Kwaremont, a street that climbs the same hill along the Kwaremont, was 'discovered'. In 1974, the Oude Kwaremont was immediately included in the Tour of Flanders and replaced this climb.
