The Organizing Connection specialises in organising events. We do so on the instructions of others and on our own initiative. However, our starting point is always the same: a successful event starts with an optimum preparation.

UCI BMX World Championships

“Eric Kersten is a familiar face to Rotterdam Topsport. When he proposed his idea of making a bid for the 2014 BMX World Championships a few years ago, we soon became enthusiastic as well. A trendy sport that suits Rotterdam perfectly, well organised and in close collaboration with a reliable, enthusiastic, hardworking partner: a man from Brabant with a Rotterdam character!”

Hans Zoethoutmaar, Rotterdam Topsport

UCI BMX Supercross World Cup

In 2011, we brought the UCI BMX Supercross to the Netherlands. Since then, we have organised this BMX World Cup race (that only has 5 editions worldwide) at our own expense and risk. In 2013, we expanded this event with the Papendal Bike Event.

Almost indispensable
“Eric and his company The Organizing Connection have been involved in our tournament from the conceptual phase. Over the years, he has become a family friend, but he is also professional and practical, knows the right people and his practical jokes and sense of humour alone make him almost indispensable.”

Reliable partner
“As organisation of the GP Adrie van der Poel in Hoogerheide we have worked together with The Organizing Connection since 2007. Since then we have organised Cyclo-Cross World Championships together twice: in 2009 and 2014. The Organizing Connection is a reliable partner to us.”

For the first time, the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships took place in the Netherlands in 2015.
