Children are in the driving seat at Little Champions

Saturday 26 June 2021

The 2021 UCI Road World Championships are fast approaching. With the Flanders 2021 Roadshow starting on 24 July, the World Championships are coming to you! The roadshow also has activities specially for children. In Little Champions, an initiative of Cycling Vlaanderen, children aged between 5 and 14 get the chance to hone their cycling skills on a challenging cycle track. Our focus is on safety and fun.

Taking bends, slaloming between different attributes, driving over speed bumps... These are the challenges children have to overcome on the Cycling Vlaanderen cycle track. Experienced initiators and volunteers are on hand to perfect the technical cycling skills of children aged 5 to 14. Who knows what potential talent may emerge? Could your son or daughter be a future cycle racing champion?

However, the emphasis of Little Champions is on safety. Children benefit from being able to ride a bike proficiently for the rest of their lives, whether they cycle to school or decide at some point to participate in cycle racing. Naturally we want to include them in the Flanders 2021 story. The World Championships are for people of all ages. This unique cycling experience is sure to boost your child’s enthusiasm and enjoyment of cycling. Come on everyone, let’s go!
