Overview

Tour of Flanders Business Academy brings Lance Armstrong to Flanders for a brand new event

14 December 2017

Tour of Flanders Business Academy is an event where business, society and cycling meet and cross-pollinate each other. It's a unique physical, mental and sensory experience. Values such as sportsmanship, drive and community are not only central but they are also experienced by the participants.

At the Tour of Flanders Business Academy, you will complete the final of the Tour of Flanders in the company of fellow sportive business leaders. Offer your guests a unique experience, enjoy delicious food and listen to our keynote speaker's experiences. Open, honest and transparent.

SPORTS HEROES

Heroes inspire us because they achieved the extraordinary. Their personal stories make them recognisable to all of us. Heroes evoke memories. They are not made after one achievement. They achieve their status by repeating results. That makes them superhuman.

"With the 'Tour of Flanders Business Academy', we aim to invite a top-class speaker to Flanders each year. This can be someone from the world of cycling, but could just as easily be a representative of another sport or another aspect of our society. The very first speaker we have invited is Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong is delighted to be visiting Flanders to tell his story and experience his favourite one-day race live. He is inviting you for this unique experience with the following message.

The very first speaker we have invited is Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong is delighted to be visiting Flanders to tell his story and experience his favourite one-day race live. To him, this will also be a return to cycling and, as far as I am concerned, he is very welcome! Lance Armstrong is and remains a great champion. I have felt for many years now that he was above all punished for his arrogance."

"I met Lance Armstrong in Washington last October and found him to be a chastened man who has made peace with his fate. Of course, we in the cycling sport need to continue making every effort to combat doping, but we also need to come to terms with our past. I think it’s good that we continue to honour champions like Laurent Jalabert and Richard Virenque, so why shouldn’t we welcome Lance Armstrong and Jan Ullrich back into our big cycling family as well?”
