The greatest mtb marathon in the Benelux

Bart Brentjens Challenge 

Start- en finish : Vroenhof at Eijsden (Limburg)

105 km.

Managed to get back into the first group to start. Sunny and dry weather, so a fast course, but still cold morning.

First piece by Belgian border region is still moist.

Climbing and descending is fine.

After Gulpen I try to make some more pace. When climbing the Bemelerberg I have to get some air to chat with a passing cyclist racing.

In Cadier and time it throttle during the climb and I can catch quite a few people.

The last piece I keep sticking behind a racer and remove course just before the finish.
