“The queen of classics” is a formidable and exciting race, considered by many to be the best one day classic cycling race to watch. The start of the ‘Hell of the North’ is in Compiegne and the finish is in the famous Roubaix Velodrome. The 2019 Paris-Roubaix Challenge in April 2019 gives you the opportunity to ride nearly the full route including all of the cobbles of one of the oldest and most significant of cycling events, the day before the Pro race. The 2019 Roubaix Challenge event will be held the day before the Paris Roubaix Pro Race and you will do a lap on the Roubaix Veldorome when you finish and you can even have a shower in the famous Roubaix Velodrome showers if you want to.
We have a great weekend programme in store for you if you want to come and spend the weekend in Roubaix with us. Apart from booking your 4 star hotel in Roubaix with us, we can also offer you exclusive hospitality at the stage start and stage finish in Compiegne and Roubaix respectively. Couple all this with a hotel in Roubaix (available at additional cost), not far from the Roubaix Velodrome and you have a brilliant weekend watching the 2019 Paris-Roubaix.
Liege Bastogne Liege is nicknamed ‘La Doyenne’ as it is the oldest race out of the classics which is still taking place today. Don’t be fooled and think that Belgium is flat. This race takes in plenty of steep, hilly sections and makes for some dramatic racing. Liege-Bastogne-Liege is the oldest of cycling’s classics. First run in 1892, Liege Bastogne Liege, or LBL as it is also called, takes you through the hilliest parts of Belgium, along routes typical of the Ardennes. The full distance amateur event is definitely one of the toughest one-day cycling events that you can take part in.
