Lance Armstrong invited to speak at the Tour of Flanders Business Academy

The Flanders Classics series has invited lance Armstrong, who won seven Tour de France titles, to its inaugural Tour of Flanders Business Academy two days before the professional race

“With the ‘Tour of Flanders Business Academy’, we aim to invite a top-class speaker to Flanders each year,” said Wouter Vanderhaute, head of the organisation.

“This can be someone from the world of cycling, but could just as easily be a representative of another sport or another aspect of our society."

“The very first speaker we have invited is Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong is delighted to be visiting Flanders to tell his story and experience his favourite one-day race live. To him, this will also be a return to cycling and, as far as I am concerned, he is very welcome!”

The business academy's mantra "Heroes are not always the ones who win, they are the ones who sometimes, but they keep fighting, they keep coming back and they never give up." "That's what makes them heroes!"

The event takes place on  on Friday, March 30th.

The Tour of Flanders series organises a huge number cycling challenges across Belgium including the Etxx Classics Tour and Proximus Cycle Challenge series.
