To celebrate the Spring Classics we are giving away an amazing VIP Experience for the 98th Tour of Flanders on April 6.
Organised by cycle tour experts Go4Cycling the day provides an extraordinary experience for any cycle fan.
You will watch the race at all the best locations and at the most famous climbs and, using the experience and knowledge of Go4Cycling, see all the big moves and critical moments as the Monument unfolds.
The winner’s exclusive day will begin in Bruges (Brugge) and at the riders zone on ‘t Zand (where the professional team coaches are parked). Following the start of the race in Bruges, the winner will then join the Go4Cycling VIP-minibus and head off to watch the race.
The minibus will stop several times on the race course to see the race pass where you will get to experience the course at close quarters including the famous iconic cobbled climbs of the Tour of Flanders.
During the afternoon, a VIP lunch with champagne will be provided as you watch riders pass by you. The minibus then heads to the finish at Ronde van Vlaanderen where you’ll watch the end of the race. Go4Cycling will then drop you back off to Bruges at the end of the race.
Last year's winner of the VIP Tour of Flanders trip with Go4Cycling, Christine Bertram, blogged for us on her experiences of the day on the Tour of Flanders. Check out how she got on in our blog here.
