What's Cool In Road Cycling

Fan club Stig Broeckx keeps hoping

Fight For Stig bracelets as token of support for the family

More than one and a half months after the severe accident Stig keeps fighting to make progress, just like his family and the medical staff who take care of him every day. They haven’t given up hope and neither have we. Stig is a tough guy, always positive and always smiling. Not a quitter, but a fighter.

That’s why we appreciate that Lotto Soudal started the Fight For Stig campaign. The nine riders and staff at the Tour all wear a Fight For Stig wristband. A nice gesture of the warm family that the team is.

Wristbands also for sale in the online shop

As a fan club we decided to expand this initiative as a token of support for the loved ones of Stig. The large demand for the red wristbands has surprised us. The first 1000 bracelets were sold out after only one week, through some local selling points. We already ordered 3000 extra bracelets and we set up an online shop so fans and sympathizers who don’t live nearby can also become a small radar in the fight of Stig.

Because don’t be mistaken: we get support from all over Flanders, but also from France and the Netherlands. This is appreciated by us and the family of Stig.

What about the proceeds?

We want to emphasize that there aren’t any commercial goals. The bracelets are sold at 2 euros (and transport costs), we deliberately have chosen to keep the prize low. Because of the costs of production, transport, boxes, stickers and posters there is hardly any profit. The fan club doesn’t have the ambition to gain from this. If there are any proceeds these will be for the benefit of Stig.

Where can you get the wristbands?

The wristbands are for sale in a dozen cafés and bike stores in the Campine region, but also in the Bike Store of Niels Albert and De Karper, the café of Ronny Keisse (father of Iljo), in Ghent. They can also be ordered online.
