With modern lined brake cable housing bend radii can be considerably tighter than if using older unlined housing w/o getting excessive drag. Standard routing is along the inside curve of drop bars , exiting from under the bar tape near the stem. Most modern bars have a depressed area for routing the brake cable, and sometimes the shifter cable, in that area.
Any good modern road bike manual, or the Park Tools web site, should show this.
