Belgium 2018

News and Views

Hello Cycling Lovers, hope your having a great day,

Bonjour Belgium!

15 years ago, I battled my way to my first & only Tour of Flanders Podium. What an incredible day it was. Fighting it out over the famous flemish roads against all my "heroes". That day changed the way I approached the Classics forever. From that day on, I knew, given the right circumstances and a bit of luck that anything was possible. I started dreaming of bigger things. I focused every training ride and race on the Classics.

Now, I am sitting in my Hotel room in Ghent, about to witness it all again, but from the sidelines. Rubbing shoulders with the locals. Enjoying a Belgian beer as the guys race up the cobbled climbs in agony. I'll have a wry smile on my face thanking God I've retired!

This year its cold, wet and just how the Classics should be. Its going to be the real hard riders of our sport that Win.

This year on our max'd out www.mummucycling.com Classics trip, the guests have a jam packed 10 days.

Riding both Flanders & Roubaix Gran-fondos, a Meet & Greet with Mitchelton-Scott before Paris Roubaix, catching up with Tom Boonen for a Beer, riding Fl├Ęche & Amstel with Frank Schleck as our ride guide then VIP hospitality inside the Roubaix velodrome after watching a few sections of cobbles on the roadside. And if you thought it couldn't get any better we will then have lunch with the Greatest of them all, the "King", Eddy Merckx.

I love the Classics and being in Belgium for their National Cycling day then France for Roubaix, its got to be one of the best weeks of cycling of the year!

And this year Mummu Cycling squad are right into it. We always aim to give every guest the Real Pro experience... Sometimes that means landing in the ditch .... Unreal effort to complete the 170k after this! Well done to everyone for completing a huge challenge #mummuontour

Shut Up Legs 4 - 17th January 2018


News and Views

Hello Cycling fans, hope your having a great start to 2018.

I would like to inform you on an entertaining event coming up on the 17th January 2018.

Starting at 7pm we present the 4th edition of the “Shut Up Legs”  with Jens Voigt, hosted by myself, Stuart O’Grady at the Arkaba Hotel.

Jens is world renowned for being a super tough cyclist & his motto, “Shut Up Legs” has been a global hit. Jens and I were team mates for 14 years, and share the World Record for Tour De France starts, racing 17 each.

That's 34 laps of France (136,000kms) between us and approximately 1.5 million km's in their careers all up around the world.

Between us we have won stages & worn the yellow jersey in the Tour De France, been a part of TDF winning teams and been involved in some major accidents... basically seen and experienced everything there is to see on a bike.

We chat about our times together living in Europe and the ups & downs of those journeys, and will also be talking to special guests Mark Reid, the Invictus Games cycling coach along with a couple of the athletes that are going to Sydney in 2018 to compete in the games.

The Invictus Games is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by Prince Harry, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports

This is a fun and informal night that will give you a real insight into the Cycling World with plenty of laughs. Jens is hilarious and we bounce of each other like brothers.

Q & A will follow plus we will auction off a couple of items signed by Jens and Stuart..

★ TICKET PRICE INCLUDES - Cocktail food and 3 hour beverage package including Penny’s Hill wines, Pure Blonde, Carlton Draught, Bulmers, Pure Blonde Cider and soft drinks.
