Etixx Classics Tour: Cycling in the Tracks of the Pros!
The Etixx Classics Tour is a series of ten “bucket list” cycling events for passionate and keen riders from Belgium and abroad, who can discover the courses of the most beautiful and famous Flemish cycling classics. These always take place the day before or the day after the Pro race
A Classic Flemish Course For Everyone!
The opener of the Etixx Classics Tour is the Omloop het Nieuwsblad Cyclo on Sunday 25 February, which starts the calendar off with a bang as every cycling fanatic can discover the finale of the old course of the Tour of Flanders!
The part across the Muur van Geraardsbergen and the Bosberg and the finish in Meerbeke is a true dream-finale.
From Meerbeke to Nokere and Waregem, you can follow in the tracks of the Pro riders on the course of Danilith Nokere Koerse and Dwars door Vlaanderen. These two beautiful courses will help riders to conquer the Kemmelberg and other hills in Heuvelland during the Ghent-Wevelgem Cyclo on Saturday 24 March.
Etixx Fuels Your Goal!
Sports nutrition producer Etixx is the proud title partner of the Etixx Classics Tour. Mario Debel, CEO of Etixx Sports Nutrition: "As a dedicated cycling fan myself I am enthusiastic about this 3-year agreement which will help place Etixx products in the spotlight. This is a great way to convince the participants of the importance of sports nutrition during preparation and getting to the finish of the race. To make the right choice on which Etixx product to purchase, I advise everyone to seek advice from your pharmacist."
On the calendar of the Etixx Classics Tour, we will see a new event: the Etixx Classic (ex-Davitamon Classic) from Nazareth, which is known by several pros as their favorite training course and is the second largest cyclosportive of Belgium. This fantastic organization has now joined the Etixx line-up.
Jo Delbaere, board member of the WTC De Wielervrienden says the following about the collaboration: "After each edition we get the request from participants to organize annually like we did the first 5 editions. But as a modest cycling club made of volunteers, we cannot do that, the event has become too big. Peloton offers us professional help which is welcome. Together with them, we will continue to guarantee the same quality in the future. We, our members and our main sponsor are also very pleased with the recognition that the Etixx Classic will receive as it is presented next to tours of pro races in the new Etixx Classics Tour."
