Science & Cycling 2021, 22-23 September 2021, Leuven, Belgium

After a difficult year 2020 we are looking forward to have a new edition of the Science & Cycling Conference this year. We hope the situation in the world has improved in such a way this fall to make the conference possible..

For the first time in it’s history the international conference is not taking place in conjunction with the start of the Tour de France, but is linked to the World Championships Cycling in Leuven, Belgium.

During the conference experts from the competitive cycling world and scientists will exchange the latest research and experiences. Alongside the conference an experience square will be set up in which companies and institutes can give demonstrations of their products and technologies.

The participants will consist of researchers, doctors, nutrition experts, sports directors, cycling organisations, trainers and cyclists/triathletes. The conference aims to get also contributions from other sport disciplines all with the objective of learning and sharing experience.

The Steering Committee will invite keynote speakers to share their views with the audience and experts from all over the world are invited to present their work in the conference.

The 2021 edition of Science & Cycling will take place in Leuven, Belgium; 22-23 September 2021
