LCMT 2019 re-opens almost: tomorrow 15 September you can subscribe again!
TIK TAK TIK TAK... de klok telt af naar 15 september 10u15... Inschrijvingen heropenen... voor de grote start op respectievelijk 30 (koersfiets) en 31 (MTB) mei 2019. Dan gaat de 21ste editie van de LCMT van start in Houffalize. Met een nieuwe en ruimere start/finish-omgeving op en rondom de voetbalsite van RESC Houffaloise en met alweer enkele nieuwe extra formules zoals de cross-duathlon. Qua fietsaanbod oogt het plaatje nu compleet met meer dan ooit voor elk wat wils. Uiteraard blijft de ongeëvenaarde mountainbike-tour tot de verbeelding spreken. Competitief of recreatief! Nu ook met een echte competitieformule op de iets kortere afstand (large). Wie voor 30 november inschrijft kan - zolang de voorraad strekt - het hotelarrangement in Vayamundo erbij nemen, voortaan wel apart te boeken (hotel-policy).
Ga naar de inschrijvingspagina op deze website en maak uw keuze duidelijk!
Verder blijven we onze hoge kwaliteitsnormen getrouw en wordt in de komende weken en maanden alweer duidelijk dat de LCMT een op en top 'gesoigneerd' evenement blijft. Intussen ook terug met onze Borzée-etappe (MTB-liefhebbers) richting La Roche op dag 1. Waardoor de gewaardeerde nieuwe start-etappe van 2018 meteen de slotrit wordt in 2019!
Ook op de racefiets zal terug over de Col de Haussire worden geklauterd, al proberen we ook zoveel mogelijk Oostkanton-wegen te behouden.
Tot slot: triathlonvrienden, je krijgt de keuze uit 2 afstanden. Een iets lichtere (maar noem het géén 'light'!) versie naast de zware 'King of the Ardennes'. En wat cross-duathlon betreft, daar voegen we het loopparcours tweemaal daags toe aan voor hen een 'large' (géén XL dus) afstand op de mountainbike! Voor triatleten en duatleten geldt dat we pas later naar uw afstandskeuzes zullen vragen. Dus bij uw inschrijving nog géén melding maken van welke versie u verkiest. Idem voor de competitie-mountainbikers die op de 'large' willen gaan uitblinken (apart klassement daar naast de XL-afstanden).
WELKOM BACK en voor wie nog nooit van LCMT heeft gehoord: KOM PROEVEN EN WORD OOK LCMT-VERSLAAFD!
PS: in de komende dagen en weken wordt nog volop aan de update van de website gewerkt, zie bv. parcours en dergelijke...
LCMT supporting Cycling for Life (one week before re-opening the subscribe page for LCMT 2019)

Let LOVE rule in the new significance of our LCMT-brand: welcome to LOVE Cycling Mountainbiking Triathlon!
20th edition of a landmark in its genre, that should be celebrated. And then you present yourself at you very best. So the new cover of our proud flag sounds as such: LOVE CYCLING MOUNTAIN BIKING TRIATHLON. In the next years (and hopefully much longer)it will be the new subtitle of LCMT.
- Because multisporting is really boosting.
- Because LOVE apparently more than a 'LIFE' for the bike, or maybe a little too social media-liking LIKE over-ruled this open 'poll'.
- LOVE, that is love for your sport, but it breathes also the typical 'warm' and jovial atmosphere where LCMT more than any other event. And the mission to which we commit ourselves: ensure that 'love' is always the red wire. Friendships maintained, or in the LCMT fresh new relationships can be made. To help and assist each other. And for us who organize it: our participants are more than just customers. We continue to 'care for them.
- THANK YOU FOR THE MANY WHO HAVE VOTED! Here is the score distribution in a beautiful statistic. And in the meantime also congratulations to the 5 cycle-shirt-winners:XAVIER VERMEEREN, STIJN DE KEYSER, THOMAS beirnaert, aged WESLEY ROSE and BERRY OOMEN, you get a bike-shirt customized with your application in Houffalize mid-may!
New name for the LCMT: choose your favourite subtitle now!
20 years is a lot of time, so from Low Countries' Mountainbike Tour over Luxembourg Cycling & Mountainbike Tour (since 2014), we consider the moment mature to change our name again. Of course, nobody will touch the 'holy' LCMT-abbreviation. But on its significance we want to follow our recent evolutions.
Make your choice and perhaps you win the new LCMT-cycle shirt from Bio-Racer...
