World championships cycling in FLANDERS 2021

The World Cycling Championships are coming to Belgium at the end of September and we are delighted to announce that BOPLAN will be part of it. Together with Flanders 2021, we are joining forces to provide all the time trials in Knokke/Brugge and the road races in Leuven with the necessary safety solutions.

From Saturday 18 September to Sunday 26 September, the best riders in the world will compete against each other for the famous rainbow jersey. More than 50 countries from all over the world will travel to Flanders to take part in one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

BOPLAN® is providing a total of

  • 50 RACE BUMPERs which act as a resilient buffer between rider and obstacle (traffic poles, light posts, trees, etc.) along the road.
  • 20 RACE TOTEMs made of impact-absorbing polymer.  These "super-powered signalling devices" warn riders of potential dangers such as traffic islands and road blocks.
  • 300 RACE BARRIERs, specially designed to secure the finish area and dangerous spots on the course.



In the run-up to the elite men's road race, CEO Xavier Ramon will be the guest in a panel discussion on Saturday 25 September. Together with UGent and Wahoo he will discuss safety in cycling. During this thematic evening, the latest technological innovations, ideas and products in the cycling industry are discussed with a lot of interesting keynotes. During the Future of Cycling Meetups, a lot of leading speakers will share their view on the future, as well as our CEO. Topics like digital applications, health, equipment and materials are addressed in keynotes or panel discussions.
