  Kruishoutem Belgium Kermis Cycling Race - Dominique Mayo Our goals it accelerate the development of each rider by allowing them to gain as much experience in racing as quickly as possible. Belgium is unique in that riders here are able to find themselves racing many more races that in their home country, but also eliminating many of the travel days that inhibit the development of a rider. Here you can focus on racing, recovery and learning in an environment custom developed to allow you to gain as much from your time as possible.
If you are interested in racing for less than the 9 weeks we have a few limited spots available. Priority will be given to those who wish to stay longer and we charge €375 per week for stays more than 4 weeks and €450 per week for stays less than one month for the devo camp.
