***Now SOLD OUT for 2019***
Join us on Wednesday 8th - Sunday 12th May 2019 for our Belgian Mountainbike Challenge (BeMC) Pro Race Camp. You can race and recover like a Pro whilst we do the work in the background during this fully serviced experience.
With its sawtooth route profile Belgian Mountainbike Challenge (BeMC) is known as one of the toughest events on the calendar. The UCI S1 stage race takes place over 4 days (Thursday - Sunday) in the beautiful Ardennes region starting in the host town of La Roche en Ardenne. The event attracts many top mountain bike pros and lots of cyclocross riders looking for some summer entertainment.
BeMC has become a favourite on the MTB calendar despite its tough nature. Stage 1 in 2019 will be a new evening prologue. Stage 2 takes place over 84km and 2450m ascent, stage 3 over 100km and 3050m ascent, and stage 4 over 67km and 2300m ascent. The numbers only tell half the story, these trails are steep and rough and with strong competition the pace is high. It’s hard work but a lot of fun, lots of climbing means lots of descents and there’s some real gems to put a smile on your face and bring misery to your overheating brake pads!
