SHUTTLES FOR THE 172K ROUTE

To make your logistics easier, we are organising a shuttle service which will drop you off at the start of the 172k route, in Busigny. To subscribe to this service, go to your A.S.O Challenges account, "Options” section.

  1. Collect your race number on Friday afternoon at the Jean Stablinski Velodrome in Roubaix. If you have subscribed to the shuttle option, we will give you a ticket indicating the number of the bus which will take you to Roubaix and the letter of the truck that will transport your bike.
  2. On Saturday morning, park your car in Roubaix. To reserve your space, click here. 
  3. We look forward to seeing you at the shuttle boarding point at the Auchan Leers shopping centre at 5am.
    • Your bike will be loaded into a truck (assigned to your bus) securely: cardboard dividers will separate each bike preventing them from rubbing against each other.
    • You will board the bus which corresponds to the number featured on your ticket.
    • Your bus and the truck transporting your bike will travel together to make it easier to collect it at the finish in Busigny.
  4. Set off for the race serenely.
