With only one week to go until the 2018 European Championships that will be held in Ostende, the skaters will have the chance to test the track this weekend while fighting for the last points of the Europa cup classification.

The 2017 champions are back
2017 Flanders Grand Prix's winners Peter Michael and Sandrine Tas will be back this weekend to defend their titles from last year. They enter the weekend as strong favorites for the overall victory but we might have some surprises!

Interesting sprint competitions to come
We could see some pretty serious battles in the men’s sprint races between skaters like Simon Albrecht, Mathias Vosté, Ronald Mulder, Kay and Rick Schipper and other good sprinters. The two shorter distances of the weekend are the 300m time trial and the 1000m.

World Championships revelations will be in action
Young skaters like Tomas Bohumsky (youth), Jordy van Workum and Jason Suttels (juniors) who collected awesome results at this year's World championships will skate this weekend as a preparation for the European Championships. You should keep an eye on them, especially the Belgian Suttels who will be skating at home.
