Ride like a world champ on RGT sim's new Flanders course

RGT Cycling, the free to use virtual cycling platform, has announced its latest course with links directly to the ongoing 2021 World Championships in Flanders.

The new road incorporates the climbs of Keizersberg, Decouxlaan, Wijnpers and Sint-Antoniusberg on a circuit throughout the historic Leuven City in partnership with Deloitte and the City of Leuven. The 15.4km virtual course provides a challenging 136m elevation before the finish line on Geldenaaksevest by the Sint-Antoniusberg church.

RGT Cycling’s launch coincides with the participation of some of the world’s best cyclists in Leuven this week for the UCI World Championships. Fans can experience the route for themselves without having to leave their homes and travel.

It adds to the Flanders content already enjoyed by users of the platform, with their De Ronde road built in partnership with the Tour of Flanders organisers already a firm favourite.

The Leuven road is currently their most detailed road simulation to date. A new mapping method allows RGT Cycling to provide users with a more accurate replication of parcours and buildings. 10 landmarks are included, such as the City Hall of Leuven, the historic Leuven City library and even the old Stella Artois brewery.

The RGT team and athletes will celebrate the launch with the Flat Out Flanders Series, a series of events that includes time trials, road races and hill climbs. It commenced on the 21st of September 2021.
