Friday, 20th of April: arrival @Liège

Today someone from our organization will meet you at Liège airport or train station and will assist you to our vehicle and bring you to our accommodation near Liège where we will spend the next 3 nights.

The first job will be to assemble your bike and Go4Cycling staff will be on hand if you have mechanical problems or need any other assistance. We will then leave for a short ride to discover the area around the place where we stay.

Tonight a Welcome Dinner is provided at the dining room of the hotel. There, the tour leaders will explain the whole itinerary and present the programme of the following ten days. We’ll also explain how we ride in group, the pace, the organized evening city trips, et cetera. This is a good occasion to ask any questions you might have but of course also to meet the people who you will be spending your holiday with.

Saturday, 21st of April: riding the cyclo Liège-Bastogne-Liège

Luik-Bastenaken-Luik, the Dutch name for Liège-Bastogne-Liège, is one of the highlights of each cycling season. Professional cyclists describe it as the most beautiful but also the most difficult race. Since the last 2 years you can also participate in the official cyclo version containing the main slopes. We will ride around in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Belgian Ardennes.

Sunday, 22nd of April: watching Liège-Bastogne-Liège in VIP-style

Brief history of Liège-Bastogne-Liège:

Liège-Bastogne-Liège, in French often called La Doyenne ("the oldest"), is one of the five 'Monuments' of the European professional road cycling calendar. Liège-Bastogne-Liège is part of the UCI World Calendar and is part of the Belgian Ardennes Classics series, which also include the Flèche Wallonne. Both are organised by Amaury Sport Organisation. At one time, the Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège were run on successive days as le Week-end Ardennais. Only seven riders have achieved the Ardennes double by winning both in the same year: the Swiss Ferdi Kübler even twice (in 1951 and 1952), Belgians Stan Ockers (1955), Eddy Merckx (1972) and Philippe Gilbert (2011), Italians Moreno Argentin (1991) and Davide Rebellin (2004) and the Spaniard Alejandro Valverde also twice (2006 and 2015). The race has in several editions been affected by tough weather conditions. In 1919, 1957 and 1980 there were severe conditions with low temperatures and snow. Two riders shared the win of the 1957 race. Germain Derijcke was the first over the line but because he crossed a closed rail crossing, the second placed rider, Frans Schoubben, was promoted to first place as well. Derijcke was not disqualified because he had won with three minutes advantage so the judges felt he had not profited from illegally crossing the closed rail crossing. The 1980 edition is memorable because of snow that besieged the race from the start and was referred to as neige-Bastogne-neige (snow-Bastogne-snow) by commentators. Bernard Hinault attacked with 80 km to go and finished nearly 10 minutes ahead.

Our programme for today:

Today we’ll go to the start of the race at the Place Saint-Lambert in Liège. After the start, we will view the race at multiple locations on the course.

Monday, 23rd of April: a goodbye from Go4Cycling

The trip ends and we head our different ways. Maybe we’ll see you again on another tour. We will have a bus available to shuttle people to the airport during the day.

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

 

The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France (Yell Cadel!), the Olympics (Greg VA!), World Championships (Fast Phil!), and grueling Classics. Despite its success, BMC has not been resting on their laurels: to stand still means being overtaken – to remain at the top, even the best must evolve. The new Teammachine pushes the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of light weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design; a jet on wheels.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The 40mm high-profile carbon DT swiss wheelset is mounted with 25mm clincher tires to offer you the lowest rolling resistance.

The SLR01 is available in sizes 54 - 56 - 58.

Rental prize: 70€/day

BMC Roadmachine RM01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

BMC Roadmachine RM01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

Who said you couldn’t have it all? The Roadmachine challenges the traditional road bike categories. From axle to axle, this bicycle delivers sleek, integrated technologies and hints at free speed from every angle. Brilliant pedaling efficiency and the ideal level of compliance for legendary long days of riding leave you with no doubts; this bike has it all.

The roadmachine 01 is an all but perfect bicylce. It’s a study in what road bikes for the non-racer are becoming: disc-equipped, light and compliant, fully integrated and versatile, thanks tot the tire clearance. It is one of the most striking bikes that BMC has ever produced.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The light carbon 3T wheelset is mounted with 28mm clincher tires for added riding comfort.


The Roadmachine is available in sizes 58 - 56 & 54.

BMC SLR03 Shimano 105

BMC SLR03 Shimano 105

With an identical racing inspired geometry as the team machine 01, the 03 is an allround carbon racer that cannot hide its origins from the bike that stormed Philippe Gilbert to his world championship title or Cadel Evans to win the Tour de France.

Your bike will be fitted with rim brakes and a solid shimano 105 groupset with a compact 50/34 front chainring and 11/28 rear cassette in order to be able to tackle the steepest ‘cols’ or ‘cime’ that will cross your path during your journey.

The shimano wheelset is mounted with all round 25mm clincher tires.


BMC teammachine SLR03  - Shimano 105 is vailable in sizes 47 - 51 - 54 - 57.
