Why Book This Trip?

The most famous one day race in the world and the most brutal sportive of the year in one weekend. You can experience both. The Paris Roubaix sportive takes you over all of the hardest sectors of this assault of a route finishing in the legendary velodrome in Roubaix. Choose from 3 Sportive distances that all start and finish in Roubaix at the famous velodrome apart from the long distance which starts in Busigny (90 mins from Roubaix).

Long Distance event

The premium 170km event is back in 2024. Book with us and we collect you from the hotel with our coach with bike trailer. However, the number of places is limited due to the fact that Paris–Roubaix Femmes will be taking place on the same course and day as the Paris–Roubaix Challenge. This distance is accessible only to experienced cyclists, average speed required of 21.2 km/h over the 170 km course including around 50 km of cobblestones to arrive before 3:00 p.m. at the Velodrome.
