I was honestly surprised about the sportive success and the organization of the first two editions of the BeNe Ladies Tour.
In fact, the absolute best from different nations came to the clash in the Flemish polders, to compete with champions such as Emma Johansson and Jolien D’Hoore. Cyclists and coaches broadly praised this stage race for women. The BeNe Ladies Tour is a top event ! The comments in several radio- and tv-reports, even in the Tour de France reports, speak for themselves. The expansion from two to three days, with the entry of Zelzate, proved to be a successful move.
The eyes of the national and international press will target Sint-Laureins, Philippine and Zelzate again for this formidable international and cross-border competition. More than ever, the organizers and sponsors are in the spotlight of numerous spectators and together we make this a fascinating three days. These sporty women will have to go the extra mile to beat the cobblestones of the region, the wind and the fierce competition.
I’m looking forward with enthusiasm, together with you !
See you there !
