Not everyone has the condition or the time to cycle around the entire Flemish Ardennes three days in a row, we totally get it! Since we want to be a three-day event for every cyclist, we are also including a recreational ride in our program this year. For the third year in a row, you’ll be treated to a brand new course to ride. Those who have participated in the recent years know that our top priorities are always original, professional-style tracks, extensive feed zones and a pleasant post-ride experience! At the finish, you will also find nice showers, a manned spray station to wash your bike, the course map of our three-day stage race, and the possibility to test some top bikes!
Those who participate in the longest distance ride option (57 km) will get to tackle the notorious Leo Piron path, the world-famous Koppenberg, technical delights around Ladeuze, the Taaienberg, a particularly beautiful passage in the Muziekbos as well as the extremely adventurous final kilometers towards Hotond Sporthotel, with the wildly steep Fiertelmeers and a big dip in the Hotond Arena pit, made famous through the GP Mario De Clercq cyclocross event! We also offer two shorter distances (30 and 42 km), where we adjust the difficulty level accordingly.
PROFILE VTT – 30 km – 640 m climbing
PROFILE VTT – 42 km – 900 m climbing
