Flanders’ Bike Valley to get new Euro Cycling XP event at MECC Maastricht

From 20 through 22 October, MECC Maastricht will be holding the inaugural Euro Cycling XP.

Falling at the close of the cycling season and kick off the winter mountain biking and cyclo-cross season, the Euro Cycling XP aims to be a high-end interactive event where the focus is on cycling, cyclo-cross, mountain biking, and triathlons.

The consumer-facing event is to allow brands to present their products and services, as well as offering fans, amateurs and pros to share their knowledge on materials, training, technology, aerodynamics, strategy, nutrition, mindset and coaching.

On Saturday, 21 October, Euro Cycling XP will also be organising the Strade Limburgia tour through the Dutch and Belgian provinces of Limburg.


Euro Cycling XP is a co-production of Euro Cycling XP, Flanders Bike Valley and MECC Maastricht.

Initiator Stephan Räkers: “As a former winner of the Tour of Limburg, the Volta Limburg Classic, and the Liège-Bastogne-Liège U23 race, I have a special bond with Limburg as a cycling region. MECC Maastricht is the perfect place to hold an interactive cycling event combined with a Strade Limburgia tour and challenging clinics.”
