The winter weather seems to have disappeared for this year, and spring is just around the corner. With the rising temperatures and a nice amount of sun, it is perfect weather to go cycling again! For the first time in a long time, the corona measures have been reduced again, and we have all been looking forward to that moment. Now that most shops, hairdressers and sports facilities can partly open their doors again, we are also looking forward to having the edition of Cycling Zandvoort 2021 take place. For the time being we are still dependent on the reductions of corona measures to come, but we are looking forward with good courage!
Although we all depend on the choices of the government about further reductions of the corona measures, we as an organization do everything we can to organize a safe, sporty, corona-proof and yet fun edition of Cycling Zandvoort. With or without an audience, with or without a 24-hour race… .as long as we are allowed to cycle!
Last September, we as an organization were able to organize beautiful and safe cycling events with various March rules under various covid-19 measures. Based on this expertise, we hope to be able to get back to work in June. The circuit is of course a nice location to close, with enough space for everyone. We can organize the event completely in the open air.
Although there are currently still various travel restrictions in force, we also hope that the travel advice will be relaxed, so that we can also welcome our foreign participants on the Zandvoort circuit! Registration for the 24 hour race, the 6 hour race and the 3 hour race is open.
If the event cannot take place due to covid-19, there is a guarantee on a refund of the registration fee of 75% and on the accommodation (pit box or camping pitch) 100%. In any case, we will do everything we can to be able and to be able to organize the event. Hopefully we will see you on the 12th and 13th of June at the circuit in Zandvoort!
Unfortunately, all events are prohibited until Spetember 1. Which means the Saris Cycling Zandvoort 2020 cannot take place either. Therefore, we are now focussing on June 12 & 13 2021, the weekend on which we will organise Cycling Zandvoort next year. We hope to see everyone back in good health at the Cyrcuit of Zandvoort in 2021. Although not mandatory according to the registration conditions, participants who have already paid for the registration will receive back half of their payment.
Our partner, Koerspret Cyclists beer, offers a special Cycling Zandvoort Koerspret edition this year. This is a blond beer in a 0.75 litre bottle, espacially for the real cycling fanatic: from cycling race leader to spectator. These bottles can be bought by participants and be sold to relations for €10,- a bottle. from this, €5,- will be transferred directly to the charity World Bicycle Relief.
An update from the organisation of the Saris Cycling Zandvoort: Health comes to the first place and we hope that everyone is currently doing everything they can to get through this crisis together. Even though the situation does not look bright, we still look hopefully forward and we expect we all can go cycling on the circuit of Zandvoort at June 13 & 14. #staypositive
World Bicycle Relief has become the charity of Cycling Zandvoort. The cycling event at Circuit Zandvoort will be held on 13 and 14 June 2020. It is the first cycling event to be held after Formula 1 has been visited. Unique of course, to ride on the asphalt with your friends on which Max Verstappen has also been in action
The weekend will consist of a 24-hour race and a 6-hour race. Participants can participate as a soloist, or in teams of 2, 4 or 8 people. Each team tries to cover as much distance as possible in the form of a relay. A water bottle with a transponder in it serves as a relay stick, this is passed on in the change zone. How long a team member drives before he or she alternates, is up to the team itself. Everyone chooses their own strategy. In addition to the races, there are various product testing options and, after the 24-hour race, there is the cycling section of the triathlon on the Circuit.
Teams stay in pit boxes or at the paddock campsite. That makes it an attractive, festival-like setting. Team members who do not drive get a rest here or are pampered by caretakers of their teams with a massage or a freshly baked pancake. Friends and acquaintances of the teams can come by for free and encourage their favorites. Participating in the 24-hour race is of course unique, you drive into the night on a summer evening and head towards the morning. Teams that have a little less time, or who for the first time a day around what seems too challenging, will ride the 6-hour race. Cycling Zandvoort thus offers a great challenge for every cyclist, fanatic and recreational.
