Road World Championships in Flanders is looking for volunteers (m/f/x)
Monday 18 January 2021
In exactly eight months, from Saturday 18 until Sunday 26 September, Flanders will be the host of the Road World Championships. The 2021 UCI Road World Championships promise to be a fantastic nine-day cycling fest from Knokke-Heist to Bruges and from Antwerp to Leuven.
But there would be no race without volunteers! The organization is looking for more than 2000 volunteers a day to turn the 100th Birthday of the Worlds into one big celebration. The motto of this Worlds in Flanders – Flanders, where champions are born – is not only aimed at the cyclists. Each volunteer who helps establishing this event is a champion!
Do you want to be a part of this all? Everyone who is passionate about cycling and wants to volunteer: young and old, living close-by or a little bit further away is more than welcome. It is a unique opportunity to be part of one of the biggest sport events of the world close to home. For students this could also be a first work experience that could be the start of something bigger.
What are we looking for? From drivers and stewards, to logistic helpers and support at the reception. These are the duties that definitely need to be filled in:
- Marshalls and parking stewards who manage the course
- Service team volunteers for construction, load out and logistic support at arrival and finish and in fan zones;
- Green team volunteers who want to help to run the event as ecologically as possible
- Administrative support – accreditation, info and reception to receive guests and show them around during the worlds.
Enthusiasm and commitment for one of the tasks mentioned above are the most important requirements a candidate-volunteer has to meet. Clubs and federations are also welcome. Everyone who is interested can register now via www.flanders2021.com/en/volunteers. Click the link for more information.
