Racing in Flanders

The Flandrien Hotel & Cycling Center is Belgium’s foremost lodging for international riders and teams who want to compete in cycling events in Flanders.

The Flandrien has a full spectrum of services for riders and their families, teams, and fans. Not only does the hotel provide complete peace of mind, it is also a wonderful atmosphere in which you will meet like minded people – from youth riders to World tour Professionals.

Competing in Belgium can be confusing, with so many categories, events & registration requirements. Click here for our handbook explaining Cycling Vlaanderen’s accreditation, calendar and race entry process. Also read our guide on Strategy and Tactics for Kermis Racing.

Rider Stories

Former World Tour Professional Heinrich Haussler has used the Flandrien Hotel as his base for cyclocross racing in Belgium. We provided Heinrich with a perfect “home away from home” environment to prepare for his races. In addition to providing his accommodation and meals, Heinrich had access to our Service Course, Gym and other services such as clothes washing and drying facilities. On race day, we supported with mechanics and pit crew. And of course, Heinrich could enjoy a massage and jacuzzi at the end of a hard day of competition.
