Because of the signing of Anouk Rijff there will also be a Dutchwoman in the team. Last but not least there's Jacquelina Alvarez from Argentina.

    One of the riders that leaves the main team is Sara Verhaest. In 2015 she will ride for the youth team. Jesse Vandenbulcke makes the opposite movement. The youth team consists of four riders. Sara Verhaest and Catherine Wernimont will ride in the elite category. Fenna Vanhoutte is a junior. The fourth and last rider is Julie Roelandts, she is an aspirant of 12 years.

  • Lotto Six Days of Flanders-Ghent

    18 november 2014 - 13:11

    Tonight, Tuesday 18th November, the Lotto Six Days Flanders-Ghent will kick off at ‘t Kuipke. The 74th edition will come to an end on Sunday. Since 2010 Lotto is main sponsor of this event. The Lotto Six Days Flanders-Ghent is six days of track cycling of the highest level in an unequalled atmosphere.

    Lotto Six Days
    From 2006 until 2009 the Lotto Six Days took place in Hasselt, a race that disappeared from the calendar in 2010. In that year the Six Days of Ghent, of which the Belgian National Lottery was already partner, transformed to the Lotto Six Days Flanders-Ghent. During this event Lotto wants to tighten the bonds with its players. That's why Lotto is omnipresent on and around the track.

    Scratch card
    On the track the Danish couple Alex Rasmussen and Marc Hester will ride in the Lotto shirt. In between the different races the spectators can visit the Lotto sales stand, where everybody who buys for five euro gets a scratch card with which one always wins. There are fun prizes like two tickets for the final day on Sunday 23rd November, cycling shirts and cycling books or one of the 45 first prizes.

    Grand Prix Lotto
    Each day the visitors can participate in the competition to become the biggest and fastest Lotto cycling connoisseur. He or she can present the Grand Prix Lotto to the winner of that specific event. You can participate by going to the Lotto sales stand at ‘t Kuipke and then play a game on iPad in which your knowledge of 30 years Lotto in the peloton will be tested.
