Tour of Flanders 2017 VIP Hospitality

Sunday April 2nd 2017

After a memorable 100th edition of the Tour of Flanders last year, the 101st edition promises to be finger licking good as well. For the first time in its history ‘De Ronde’ will start in the city of Antwerp. The famous Muur van Geraardsbergen makes its return on the route and this in combination with the
Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg will no doubt make for an exhilarating finale. If you like us are looking forward to that first heroic Sunday in April then you are in luck as we now offer exclusive VIP and hospitality programmes to the 2017 Tour of Flanders.

The ‘Ronde van Vlaanderen’ is a massive popular event in Belgium. The whole nation turns out to see the heroes of cycling battle it out for the win.

You can be there too and our VIP-formulas allow you to be a race insider throughout the day. Whether you choose to be at the start in Antwerp or on one of the legendary climbs in the Flemish Ardennes or at the finish in Oudenaarde, we have different VIP access options available for you.
See below for full details.
