Selection list 50th Batavierenrace & preliminary stage division

Dear team leaders,

The starting signal of the 50th Batavierenrace will already sound in 130 days! A great 355 teams, coming from all over the Netherlands and abroad, will be standing at the start line on the 29th of April on the 'Grote Markt' in Nijmegen.

Want to know if your team is one of them? You can find the selectionlist for the General Classification and University Classification here.

Attention! Most of you (international teams included) will participate in the General Classification

If your team is not on the published selection list, even though you registered via our website, chances are that the registration was not completed in time. Meaning your team has been placed on our reserve list. For these teams, we expect that we'll be able to let you know whether you are able to participate in the race within the upcoming weeks. If you still have any questions regarding the registrations, please contact our secretary via secretaris@batavierenrace.nl.

But that's not all the news we have!

The preliminary stage division is also published as of today! In the document (that you can find here), you can read the length of every stage, where it will start, and whether a man or a woman is allowed to run the stage in question. If you still have any questions regarding the route of the race, please contact one of our Commissioners Race: g.beemer@batavierenrace.nl or k.hilbrands@batavierenrace.nl.

More information about the bus rental, bike rental via Swapfiets, shuttle buses running between Nijmegen Central Station - the campus of the Radboud University Nijmegen (restart location), coupon sales, and other logistic details will soon follow in team captain letter 2 in January 2022.

Kind regards,
the 50th OC
