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 famous Belgian sports journalist who died in a car accident (full story on the History page). Rik Van Looy, Herman Van Springel, Edwig Van Hooydonck, Wilfried Peeters, Tom Steels, Steven De Jongh and Niko Eeckhout are renowned winners.

A unique combination of real off road experience, Belgian cobble stones and a finale on excellent roads in front of 15.000 spectators, is what makes this nearly 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. The period of late August / early September is a perfect period to bridge road cycling and cyclo-cross, which is very popular in this part of Europe.
