Special prize for first place?!

Let me start with wishing everyone a happy new year, and we hope to see all of you at the end of the month in Helmond, we already have many top competitors from various team and countries registered, and it looks like this edition is going to be one of the biggest we had.

Some of you are probably wondering if we have a special prize for first place winners again? At previous editions, we gave away “winner” t-shirts and last year we tried something new with the gloves. We got a lot of great feedback on the gloves and we decided to do it again this year, but of course not without a brand new design! We love the black and gold, we think they look amazing, we hope you also love them and are going to give 110% to win a pair!

Oh, before I forget, Tuesday the 15th of January the online registration system will close, so make sure to start to register all participants before that date, you do not want to do this at the very last minute! Also, note that you can still order the shirt, this is possible until the 12th of January, so just 6 more days! You can also buy the shirt at the event of course, but it will be 20 euro instead of 15 euro in the pre-sale. So order it now, for a 5 euro discount.

Are you wondering what the Open Dutch medal will look like?

As we are getting closer to the event we will slowly start sharing the designs for the various prices. We already shared the design of the cool shirt that can be pre-ordered, note that this (discounted) pre-order will close the 12th of January 2019.

What we would like to share today is the design of the medal, we really like it, and we hope all of you also love it and will give 110% to win one. We have a lot of top competitors from various countries worldwide that have already registered, make sure you also get your registration in as soon as possible.

Before I share the design, we would also like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year! We hope to see you in Helmond at the Open Dutch 2019!
