THE LEGEND OF THE HELL OF THE NORTH
Like the Paris-Nice Challenge and the Liège-Bastogne-Liège Challenge, the Paris-Roubaix Challenge offers amateur cyclists the possibility of getting as close as possible to a legendary professional race: Paris-Roubaix.
Just a few hours before the pro men and women, amateurs from around the globe will get to test their mettle against the legend of the Hell of the North and its fabled cobbled sectors, including the Carrefour de l'Arbre and the Trouée d'Arenberg.
There are three increasingly difficult routes on offer, on roads which are open to traffic but secured by numerous volunteers and motorcyclists. There is a legendary race for everyone, covering distances from 70km, 145km or 170km.
A SPORTING AND HUMAN CHALLENGE
However, the real spirit of the Paris–Roubaix Challenge is to take up the challenge with friends and to cross the finish line at the famous Roubaix Velodrome together. The shared experience continues just after the race because you will be able to watch the finish of Paris–Roubaix Femmes and, the next day, cheer on together the greatest cyclists who will try to get their name on the history of Paris–Roubaix.
