Ride with the Gladiator – Tour of Flanders competition 2012

As one of three winners you will ride alongside Andrea Tafi in the legendary hobby event in Flanders on 31 March. On top of that there’ll be a visit to the riders’ camp and one overnight stay.
Win an unforgettable weekend (Friday 30.03.2012 – Sunday 01.04.2012) with Andrea Tafi! Travel, board and lodging included!


Andrea Tafi, the Gladiator and an undisputed classic race specialist of the 1990s will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of his win in the Tour of Flanders this year. In 2002 the now Canyon Hero was able to overcome the opposition on a demanding course, thereby securing his third win in a monument of cycling following his victories in the Tour of Lombardy and Paris-Roubaix.

In commemoration of this anniversary Andrea Tafi will be taking part in this year’s hobby event in Flanders on 31 March – and you can be there, too!


But beware! The hobby event (Oudenaarde-Oudenaarde) is also not one for the faint hearted. 134 kilometers and numerous cobbled sections, steep little climbs and all this come rain, come shine.
