The BEKING Monaco Party Continues on November 26th
Beking returns to enliven the Principality of Monaco with the stars of international cycling for a day dedicated to solidarity, education and sport. The event, which takes place on Sunday 26 November, will include numerous activities for children and families, a village for fans, two exciting races between professionals and amateurs and many surprises.
A special moment will be dedicated to the winner of the Giro d’Italia 2023, Primož Roglič, who will receive the Velo d’Or 2020, a prize awarded to him for his achievements this season, including victories of Liège-Bastogne-Liège and on the Vuelta a España, but which was never presented due to the pandemic. The Slovenian champion will challenge his colleagues in the Professional Criterium, which will take place along part of the Formula 1 circuit and will feature a number of bends and some sections classified as ‘high speed’, where the spectacle is guaranteed.
Sunday will also see the Pro-Am, a challenge between teams made up of professionals, ambassadors of the sport and two amateurs who will race on the same circuit.
Finally, the awards ceremony will be celebrated with two partners who have been supporting the event ever since the first edition: Varisco and Astoria.
The new edition of the event promises great guests, activities and lots of fun
“BEKING is not just a one-day event,” explained Claudia Morandini. “This project has become an integral part of our lives, we work every day to ensure that more and more people understand the great potential of cycling in the field of social education and raising awareness for a more sustainable and respectful society. Every year we want to broaden the vision, involve new people and open up different possibilities to expand the audience for our message. Just as cycling has taught us, to dream big you have to work hard.”
Many champions, fervent supporters of this philosophy, have already confirmed their presence at the event: Philippe Gilbert, Matteo Trentin, Elia Viviani, Elena Cecchini, and Peter Sagan. A list that is completed every year with the names of great champions who will animate the now traditional Monegasque criterium and the race dedicated to the challenges with the youngest and amateurs, the Pro-Am.
“Sport conveys important messages in a simple but incredibly effective way,” said Romy Gai, a supporter of the project since its first brainstorming session. “BEKING is a demonstration of the results that can be achieved when working as a team and passionately to reach a goal. I can only be proud to be involved in this revolution that involves all of us, our families and the children who are the future and desperately need great inspiring examples and strong ideals to uphold. I hope that 2023 will be a crucial year for BEKING, an opportunity to take a further leap forward in spreading these values.”
Mark Cavendish joins dream team of champions who will inspire Beking 2023
The multi-time Manx sprinter has embraced the project to inspire young people to become more sustainable.
Among the many stars of international cycling, Beking is proud to announce a special guest: Mark Cavendish.
The 2009 Copenhagen World Champion and multiple Tour de France green jersey winner, who has always been sensitive to sustainable mobility causes and the support of important social activities, commented on his participation in the upcoming event:
“Beking Monaco is only in its third edition and has already experienced exponential growth. I am proud to be part of this social platform to promote sustainable mobility, inspire and give back to the community a sense of livability in our cities.”
