 On your bikes mostly!

Wallonia has always attracted major sporting event organisers, and boasts many classical events in the cycling and motor racing sectors.

Cycling races in Wallonia are usually the ultimate trial for future champions before they get to top of the podium in the Tour de France or the Italian Giro. The races are performed in a challenging and varied landscape in an area that remains manageable by the organisers. The best known cycling races in Wallonia are the Liege-Bastogne-Liege and La Fleche Wallonne (the Walloon Arrow). It also regularly hosts some of the stages of the Tour de France.

As for motor racing, Wallonia of course boasts the most beautiful motor racing track in the world, Spa-Francorchamps, which became famous for the Belgium F1 Grand Prix. The curvaceous shape of the circuit makes it one the F1 pilots favourite tracks, but apart from the Grand Prix itself, you can also enjoy the entertainment of other classical races such as the ones listed here.
