Classics accessible for handicapped spectators

The Belgian INTRO organisation will see to it that from this season onwards disabled people can enjoy being at the start and finish of important races. Allocated places will be reserved in the spectator tribunes and special parking places provided. In the close vicinity of those locations, toilet facilities will be accessible for people in wheelchairs.

Flemish minister of equal opportunities, Kathleen Van Brempt, will present the initiative at the start of the Omloop Het Volk in Gent on Saturday. For the Vlaamse Pijl, the E3 Prize, the Tour of Flanders and Gent-Wevelgem the same facilities will be provided for disabled cycling fans.
