Genk, Belgium, is where history meets hip. Former coal mines transformed into cultural hotspots like C-mine bring an industrial vibe to the city. With open-air museums, lively theaters, and green spaces like Molenvijverpark, Genk keeps the good times rolling. It’s not just about the past; this city is buzzing with creativity and innovation. Genk: where cool meets cultural flair!

Sport Vlaanderen Genk, located on the doorsteps of the Hoge Kempen National Park plays host to this year’s Belgian qualifier. The pump track was built in 2019 by Velosolutions and is the first asphalted track in Belgium. It’s a single track with a total length of 250m making for a long, technical ride on race day.
