Health measures.

A health protocol, validated by an infectious disease specialist designated by the City of Brussels, has been established in order to guarantee the security of everybody. It stipulates the regulations which need to be strictly respected by all participants.

Attention !

  • It’s important not to arrive more than 15min prior to your starting time. This will help to keep the flow fluid and avoid crowds.
  • Masks must be worn at all times except during the race itself. Cyclists should remove their masks just before the start, keep them with them during the race and put them back on as soon as they dismount. IMPORTANT: valve masks are banned.

Start area

  • Respect health mesures.
  • Hand sanitizer provided.

Physical Distancing for CYLCO category

  • Crowd-control barriers will be placed in the start area to create start lanes and lines of entrants.
  • At the head of each lane: reminder of the health measures; hand sanitizer provided.
  • Each cyclist will line up with two meters between them and the entrants on their left and right.
  • Cyclists in the category that is leaving will wait one behind the other for the signal.
  • A new Cyclo category will leave in start waves every fifteen minutes, to ease congestion.
  • The participants are awaited in the departure zone 15min prior to their start.

Finish area

  • Toilets and technical stand available at the finish. Hand sanitizer provided
  • In order to prevent gatherings and bottlenecks, cyclists will continue for another hundred metres or so, as soon as they have passed through the finish arch to avoid blocking the entrants behind them.
  • Once they have come to a stop, cyclists must put their masks back on.
  • As soon as they have been given the Well-Done Pack just after arriving, cyclists will be asked to leave the area.
  • A small presentation ceremony will take place near the Atomium at around 10:30. Only the winners of the various categories (contacted by text message) and two of their supporters will be admitted.

To ensure compliance with the Health and Safety Protocol, there will be no start and finish villages.
