First run in 1896, Paris – Roubaix is one of cycling’s oldest races. 2012 will mark the 110th year of l’’Enfer du Nord’ (Hell of the North). Also called ‘the Queen of the Classics’, Paris Roubaix is now open to amateur cyclists who want an authentic taste of legend.
The 148km leading to the mythic Roubaix Velodrome are a major task to overcome. For its second edition, the Challenge will take place a week before the professional event.
Its course visits the legendary cobbled sectors and offers conditions of racing close to those proposed for the elite riders : roads totally closed to traffic, a timed route and a finish inside one of the most famous cycling stadiums in the world.
The number of places offered is limited. If you want to reserve your entry, please contact one of the listed travel agencies. You can also register online.
Dont forget to indicate your rider’s level on your entry form.
On April 1st, a few thousand amateurs will be cycling between Paris and Roubaix. Will you be part of that legendary race ?
