Germany is sending a very strong team with Christian Ahlmann (9), Ludger Beerbaum, Hans Dieter Dreher, Marco Kutscher en Marcus Ehning. Bertram Allen, the current world’s number 7, will defend the Irish flag. Four Belgian riders will cross the border: Olivier Philippaerts, Pieter Devos, Jos Verlooy and Gudrun Pateet.

Other big names are, among others: Luciana Diniz (Portugal), Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE), Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) and Michael Whitaker (GBR).


Traditionally Indoor Brabant offers lots of starting places to the Dutch riders. Of course ‘local heros’ Maikel van der Vleuten, Henk van de Pol and Dutch National Champion Leopold van Asten will be there, but also Harrie Smolders, Jur Vrieling, Gerco Schröder and Rabo Talent of the Year Lisa Nooren will defend the Dutch colors.


This competitor field promises three days of sport on the highest level with the Rolex Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon as the highlight of the event.
