Photo exhibition on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the UCI Road World Championships

Photo exhibition 100 years of UCI Road World Championships

All the eye can see - the rainbow jersey 

100 years of cycling World Championships as seen through the photographer’s lens

This unique photo exhibition zooms in on 100 years of World Champions. From among the rich archives and the collections of a few of his colleagues as well as his own, the Leuven cycling photographer Kristof Ramon selected some of the best and most iconic photos of world champions in their rainbow jerseys.

Take a journey through cycling history in the Cera building in Leuven. The nostalgic and contemporary photos also give you a good idea of the evolution of cycling and photography (cycling photography in particular). Come face to face with cycling heroes past and present and feel the elation of the winner as well as the pain, effort, and disappointment of the cyclist who failed to win the much-coveted rainbow jersey by a hair’s breadth.

Visit this exclusive photo exhibition with photos that have never been exhibited before, from 9 September until 9 October in Leuven.
