Clicking pedals, rattling chains and well-trained muscles. Once again on Ascension weekend, our racers were ready to go at the start of the 1000km race on behalf of Kom Op Tegen Kanker. 28 teams and 78 cyclists who gave a total of € 155.000 in order to be able to take part.
That money came from you too. Over the course of six months, AB donated its cup deposits and other donations to KOTK. The rule is simple: no contribution, no participation. But thanks to your generous support (and the individual efforts of our cyclists) everyone was able to set off.
And it was an exceptional edition! Again, the course came to an end in the city centre of Mechelen and the sun (and a bit of wind) kept the riders warm throughout the four days. The extremely friendly reception on arrival in the host towns deserves a special mention. The applause and encouragement from the supporters generated a lot of excitement among both the cyclists and the public.
Thank you for everything, and let’s do it again next year.
AB ❤ you
