Retro Sprint - Saturday from 15h00

The Retro Criterium from recent years will be replaced by the 'Retro Sprint'. Who took part in previous years at the Criterium will certainly like this one too. This competition ensures at least for the necessary tension and atmosphere!


The rules for participation and the dress code is the same for the ride on Sunday (see 'protocol').

These are the categories:

-Multi-Speed ​​= retro bicycle with gears
-Singlespeed= bicycle that has has only one gear, a freewheel (legs can stop turning)
-Fixed gear =  bicycle with one fixed gear (legs can not stop turning)
-High Bicycle (when enough participants)

First there is a time trial of 680m around the Church of Pamele arriving along the Scheldt. The fastest 16 (depending on number of participants per category) will go through to the Retro Cobble Sprint Tournament. This is a kind of pursuit race like on the track on a closed circuit of thick 100m. 3 laps should be completed. The rider who overtakes the other goes to the next round. Note: this course consists entirely of cobbles ...

There's only a maximum of 130 participants in total allowed. So register in advance! The participation fee is 6 euros. Each participant will get an extra insurance. Whoever wins gets the honor and will receive a trophy.

For the last timing, see 'program'.
