Organizer and creator of the route (2x BikingMan, Conquête des Ardennes, 7 Majeurs)
In my opinion, the Ardennes monster is the only Belgian race organized by ultra distance racers for ultra distance racers. Designed around a highly challenging route but always with rider's pleasure and safety in mind.
