The contract between the Union Européenne de Cyclisme and Courage International Events BV was signed this morning in Drenthe (Netherlands) for the organisation of the 2023 Road European Championships that will be held in the Dutch province from 20 to 24 September 2023.
It will be one of the most eagerly awaited of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme’s events where a total of 13 titles will be awarded during the five-day competition: Road and Time-Trial Juniors, U23 and Elite (Men and Women), in addition to the Mixed Relay.
Enrico Della Casa, President of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme: «The Road European Championships are without doubt the pinnacle of cycling events on our continent and we are looking forward to a very important event in Drenthe in 2023. Sport in the Netherlands and especially in this province is synonymous with cycling. Its huge popularity and the organisation of major events in the past are already guarantee of success.
During the five-day competition more than 1,000 athletes from over 40 countries will be in Drenthe attracting huge crowds. The extensive media coverage guaranteed by Eurovision will be shown in fans homes all over Europe and showcase a region which is preparing for these five days of great sport.
I wish to thank Drenthe Province, and Henk Brink, for his constant support and promotion of our sport, the Dutch Cycling Federation and its President Wouter Bos, and organisers of the Courage International Events BV, with the Director Thijs Rondhuis, a guarantee of top-level organisation as well as all the volunteers for their commitment and professionalism and the passion they have shown in preparing to organise these Championships.”
