Police had to intervene on the Antwerp ring-road on Saturday when hundreds of motorcyclists started performing wheelies and blocking the passage of other vehicles on the road. The bikers were taking part in the ROC Europe (Riders of the Century) event, one leg of which goes from Antwerp to Ghent. According to the VRT, motorcyclists spread out over the full width of the motorway, preventing any other vehicle from overtaking. They also performed wheelies – raising up the front wheel and riding along on the back wheel only.
