GS '2 4 - "La Conquista"

What do we have in mind ?

Unlike previous editions with 2 or 3 tracks in the same direction, we've revamped the concept for 2024. With Bierbeek as the central hub, up to 3 loops await conquering. These loops will go in different directions, covering various lengths and specifications – from an easy-rolling 45 km loop to a more challenging 75 km one. It's up to you to decide how many loops, which ones, and in which order you aim to conquer them. After each loop, there's a refuelling option – a food station at our base camp! Combining all 3 loops presents a challenge of around 175 km, while choosing for 2 loops gives you options between 100 and 130 km.

In short: Lots of options for a thrilling off-road biking day.
Team Grelly will select one loop and transform it into a social group ride. Afterward, you're free to continue your journey and take on another loop.

What kind of bike to bring ?

All tracks head south from the start/finish in Bierbeek and have a mix of terrains: gravel, tarmac, single tracks, some rougher surfaces, cobbles, and more. Don't expect only the super-smooth surfaces found in the Zoniënwoud or the High Fens; a cyclocross bike will be on the limit, but a gravel bike with at least 40mm tyres would be perfect. Mountainbikes are a good option for those seeking more comfort. Precise details, such as elevation gain and length of each loop, will be communicated alongside a rider's guide a few days before the start.
