Proximus and Flanders Classics offer you the ideal framework for a wonderful cycling experience in 2017 for the fourth year in a row. We have no less than 15 cycling races in store for you along the most beautiful places in the country between February and October. The recipe for success of the Proximus Cycling Challenge will still be maintained with extensive supplies, well signposted itineraries, technical assistance on the way and a lot of nice extras next season.
Two newcomers make their appearance on our calendar: the Danilith Nokere Koerse Cycling Race on Sunday, 12 March, and the Kwaremont Sluitingsprijs, where we will finish the season with one big Belgian cycling party on Sunday, 24 September.
However, we will commence with our five cycling classics under the motto: ride your classics yourself. Just like the professionals, you will rattle on the cobblestones of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Dwars Door Vlaanderen, tame the climbs in the Brabantse Pijl, go into battle with the wind in Gent-Wevelgem and discover the sprinter in you in the Scheldeprijs Schoten.
Afterwards, you will experience the necessary altitude challenges in Landen, Tienen, Lierde and Ninove. Defeat the Muur van Geraardsbergen yourself, or discover the toughest climbs in the provinces of Namur and Liege. We draw to a close in the summer and in the autumn we end of with our family trips in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Hasselt, Ghent Ypres and Bavikhove. Have a look at the full calendar here.
Our 15 cycling races provide a unique cycling experience that bring cycling supporters closer together from home and abroad time and time again. The Proximus Cycling Challenge makes for the ideal pastime with the cycling club, friends, colleagues, family, or just on your own. Do come and discover it for yourself during any of our cycling itineraries!
