The LCMT, the multi-day mountain bike tour organized since 1999, traditionally takes place during the Ascension weekend in May. Three stages in loop form (daily 2 to 3 optional distances) depart every day from the heart of the Ardennes, known for the Liège-Bastogne-Liège route as well as the Formula 1 in Francorchamps. The German-speaking East Cantons also offer a lot of cycling fun! You choose either the more competition-related or the recreational formula.
The LCMT for which you register offers a total package of facilities and services. Excellent supplies, roadside assistance and the presence of mechanics along the way and at the finish guarantee a carefree cycling experience. There is even a massage and if necessary you can go to the doctor. With the new booking module, your accommodation can also be added to your booking if necessary (and when stated as an option).
In short, LCMT = top experience for every passionate mountain biker who is looking for a tailor-made challenge in spring!
A mass start in the group always gives a special vibe. First the competitive riders (first 50 of last year’s edition have the right to start in front, from the 2nd day the general standings are used to give the start positions.
As the cross-duathletes first need to start each day with a running contest, they shall start 5 minutes before the mountain bikers have their start. After their morning run, they pass again at the start of their mountain bike challenge. In the end, a second running trail is still waiting. During the run contest the bicycles stay in a secured zone. Between changing disciplines time is stopped. You do NOT need to rush between shoe changing. Time starts when crossing the start line.
