Hello all, I've organised a trip over there and have a rider who wants to come over and do the full distance ride with us but hasn't made the register cut off. The online entry system is now fully booked. Are there any forum members who have booked onto the event who can no longer participate?
Ideally the full distance sportive including morning coach transfer to Brugge but any of the shorter options would be gratefully considered.

cheers

    I know of a couple of folks who queued up very first thing, for a couple of hours and finally got a spot. That was for the 135km route in and out of Oudenaarde though.

    I'm in the same boat, apart from we're all booked up apart from sportives entry. I checked to make sure there were places available late afternoon, then by the time I'd booked the hotel and tunnel crossing that night it was full.

    If anyone does get a space or two available please let me know.

    Cheers

    good luck. From what I see online this looks like the first time the events made the capacity limit of riders.

    I suppose the option of unofficially riding would be worthwhile then stay Sunday and watch the race- still not a bad weekend away!

    Hi disgruntledgoat do you still have your entry available? There maybe a rider added onto our trip who needs entry.

    thanks, Matt
