If the Belgian cobbles are on your list, then join Lars to the ‘Ronde’ region and experience the Belgian monument like Lars did back in the days. He participated no less than nine times with top results only and accordingly is probably one of the best ridemeisters to take you to the Flemish Ardennes for a classic day out.
What Lars says about his Flanders special; “There are two races on the UCI calendar that always stood out for me, and they are Paris – Roubaix and The Tour of Flanders. What makes Flanders different from Roubaix are on the one hand the cobbled climbs but also of course the thousands of people along the roads cheering at us. I have such great memories here, despite the tough races. Even when you come here outside of the classic season, de Ronde spirit and marks are always there.
Just like with Roubaix I can tell about the real insights of the race and share the secrets to how to best ride and climb these cobbles. We definitely have cover the most notorious climbs. Just imagine yourself riding up to the chapel of Geraardsbergen, the Oude Kwaremont and the Koppenberg! They will hurt, but with pain comes the greatest sense of pride once you have tackled them. To finish off the day we should definitely taste the other good side of Belgium and sit down for a beer and a proper dinner.”
Given the notorious and challenging terrain, this special will be accompanied by a mechanical car to ensure the continuity of your ride, no matter the circumstances.
Lars is offering this experience only a few times a year as he is still active as a Directeur Sportif for the women’s SD Worx team. His agenda doesn’t allow for this experience to happen every week, so make sure to book your spot for you and your group. Send us a request and we will make it happen!
