WHAT IS THE FLANDRIEN CHALLENGE?
… AND WHAT IS A FLANDRIEN?
The Flandrien Challenge is a cycling challenge where digital and physical worlds collide. It visualizes the digital STRAVA segments on the road surface of numerous storied climbs and cobbled roads in Flanders. This is a unique physical manifestation of cycling’s most popular digital experience.
A True Flandrien is a cyclist who never gives up and relishes challenge. You never hang your head when things get tough and you can hear the finish line calling you… Does this sound like you? Then get ready to prove it with the Flandrien Challenge.
WHEN CAN I RIDE THE FLANDRIEN CHALLENGE?
We know, in this period it’s difficult to cycle and even more to travel. The Flandrien Challenge, an “Unbelievable Ride”, doesn’t expire. It is a challenge that each cyclist will want to accept at least once in their life: today, tomorrow, in 6 months, in the next years or at the height of the spring classics season.
Those who are interested and are living abroad have all the time they want to train and get ready to challenge themselves in Flanders, while pushing their limits in their hometown or on their turbo trainers and being ready to conquer the Flandrien Challenge whenever we can travel safely again.
