Wanted: retro stories going back in time

We look forward to get your stories about your earlier LCMT-adventures. Knowing well that the LCMT once started as a big adventure in 1999, we have achieved already 96 LCMT-stages untill now! As the May 2017 edition is number 19 for mountainbikers, in fact one should count even this as the number 20, since in 2002 we organized 2 LCMT's in one year: the open tour in May and the specific UCI-tour called LCMT-FLANDERS won by Dutch professional Bas van Dooren in August of the same year. So it's time to get the old heroic stories now for our Golden Book. If you have your personal LCMT-memory, send it through including pictures! You may win some of our valuable prices! Use the contact formular, the e-mail address and the Facebook page! We are looking forward to hear from you.

History Tour@LCMT1999 : Big adventure, in 9 days from the Netherlands over Ardennes to Belgian Coast!

Today back to the nineties: PIONEERS ON THEIR ADVENTURE TRAILS THROUGHOUT THE LOW COUNTRIES! Winner LCMT 1999 : Wouter ROGIERS (BEL) Runner up : Thierry Goos Third : Marcy Meeuws  Despite the long distances only short trails during the stages were used for the time-registration. The rest was recreative but of course obligational as well. Those time-trials were divided under next winners: Wouter Rogiers (4 X), Jo Naert (2 X), Thierry Goos (1X), Marcy Meeuws (1X) . Gedurende drie van de 9 (!) etappes was de top-3 van het toenmalige Belgische profmountainbiken aanwezig in de LCMT. Met name Filip Meirhaeghe, Peter Van den Abeele en Roel Paulissen maakten toen hun opwachting en verbroederden spontaan met het net geen 80 koppen tellende deelnemersveld. Op de eerste 3 dagen startten er trouwens ruim 120 mountainbikers. De formule liet toen toe om 3 van de 9 ritten uit te pikken. Vooral de 3 Ardennen-dagen kenden hierbij succes. Do you remember the original stages of that first year? Here is the whole itinerary? Stage 1: Gulpen (Nederlands Limburg) - Bütgenbach (1st start on 7 August 1999). Stage 2: Bütgenbach - Houffalize (1ste X in current hotel then known as Ol Fosse d'Outh!) Stage 3: Houffalize - Rochefort Stage 4: Rochefort - Citadelle of Namur Stage 5: Namur - Halle (nearby Brussels) Stage 6: (Halle) - Geraardsbergen - Ronse Stage 7: Ronse - Ieper (Ypres) Stage 8: Zillebeke (Ieper) - Heuvellandse bergzone - Rodeberg Stage 9: Rodeberg - De Panne Beach
