Runners' lab 4 Mile of Aalst

July 22, 2024

Spicy warm-up for the NaTourCriterium


Mathieu Van der Poel, Jasper Philipsen, Remco Evenepoel, Peter Sagan, Oliver Naesen, Chris Froome... All were allowed to make the victory sign in Aalst. You could be next, albeit on foot.

Get ready for the second edition of the Runners' lab 4 Mile of Aalst.

Converted: 6.4K. An unusual distance, but ideal for those for whom 5K is just a bit too short and 10K is again just a bit too challenging.
