Schaal Sels (Sels Trophy) is a Belgian UCI 1.1 bicycle race with a lot of tradition. The first Schaal Sels was held in 1921 in honour of Jacques-Charles Sels, a sports journalist.
A unique combination of real off road experience, Belgian cobble stones and a finale on excellent roads in front of 10.000 spectators, is what makes this 200km race unique and popular. All competitors are moved by the thrilling and motivating atmosphere in the Antwerp region.
Schaal Sels has the ambition to become a UCI “hors catégorie” race where the best professional road cyclists compete the best cyclo-cross riders.
