Anyone raced in Luxembourg?

Postby MajorMantra » Fri May 18, 2012 14:18 pm

Does anyone have experience of racing in Luxembourg? I actually grew up there but ironically did not develop an interest in cycling until moving to Scotland for university.

I was wondering idly if it would be feasible to race there on my BC license. I realise the standard is probably rather high as with most of the continent but it could be amusing to give it a go if the cost isn't prohibitive. I've obviously looked at the FSCL site (http://www.fscl.lu/) but I can't see any mention of foreign licenses.

Have a look at this http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/about/article/bc-Racing-and-Riding-Abroad---Top-Tips-Before-You-Travel-0 should be possible with full BC licence and letter of permission from BC. I'm sure their membership people will be able to give advice. Working out what category to ride in might be the hardest part.

Pack a 23 or 25 sprocket! It's, er... lumpy to say the least! I rode a couple of kermesse style races down there, Fleche du Sud, and the Tour de Lux a few times... usually really good roads.
