Brussels Crit is designed to promote cycling as a sport but also as a daily activity. It is above all a friendly and festive event focused on inclusion and living together.@brusselscrit
This dynamic association gathers young cycling enthusiasts whose roots are firmly anchored in the Brussels landscape. Indeed, the 24 hours of the Bois de la Cambre, a reference scouting event, marked the beginning of their love for cycling.
Faced with the limited offer of cycling races in our region, the ex-scouts decided to make up for this lack. That's why the association decided, in order to federate the Brussels cyclists, to organize popular and sporting events around cycling.
The Brussels Crit of September 18 is their first large-scale event, which deserves to be encouraged.
This event is supported by the city of Brussels, and “Brussels big bracket” (BBB) , the biggest cycling club in the Brussels region. They believe in us since the beginning and work with us as technical support and connection with the FCWB (Féderation cycliste Wallonie Brussels)
