Roubaix is where the Queen of the Classics finishes, and for many people Roubaix is THE cycling capital of France. The town has been the finishing point for the Paris-Roubaix race since 1896, and its emotion-filled velodrome is a Mecca for all cycling fans. What's more, they say that the Hell of the North leads to Heaven…
Paris-Roubaix can be experienced throughout the year in Roubaix: there are other versions of the race (Mountain Bike Cyclo-Cross, Challenge, Junior…) and visits of the velodromes, led by an enthusiast, are organised every month by the Tourist Office.
The town is becoming increasingly important as a track cycling centre. This reputation started to grow when the "Le Stab" indoor velodrome opened. This facility is named after the famous cyclist Jean Stablinski.
Thanks to a BMX track that puts the final touch on this road and track cycling offering, Roubaix can now stage international competitions (Cyclo-Cross World Cup, track cycling international open…) all year long
Today, thanks to its high-quality facilities and prestigious events, Roubaix is a town where cycling fans can enjoy this great sport throughout the year both as spectators and participants.
There is a long love story between Roubaix and cycling and it's destined to last and last…
If the Paris-Roubaix is a truly unique race in the world, Roubaix also has a museum thoroughly deserving of being described in the same way. It is installed in the former Art Deco municipal swimming pool: The Art and Industry Museum displays its collections around the pool in the former shower cubicles and swimming baths in this 1930s swimming pool. At the time it was considered the finest pool in France.
Following the lead given by the former swimming pool, Roubaix is now being redeveloped and taking on a new modern identity: Yesterday's cotton mills are now enjoying a new lease of life providing a home for artists' workshops, lofts, universities, dance studios, boutiques…
The Tour of Flanders cyclo, Liège-Bastogne-Liège Challenge and the Paris-Roubaix Challenge form the holy triangle of the Classics sportives.
SKODA has an extra treat in store for everyone who rides these 3 races. After the final race they will receive a hand-painted miniature rider as a unique memento of this heroic Classic event!
You can collect your gift next to the deposit reclaim stand in Liège on 25 April!

The course can be modified due to route changes of the professional race.
The ultimate challenge is to ride the 170k from Busigny to Roubaix, on the same course as the pros will do the day after. However, the routes of 141k and 70k will also leave you plenty of opportunity to get to know the tough cobblestone sections of the mythical Paris-Roubaix race.
The numbering of the varying cobble stone sections is identical to the numbering in the elite race. Some consecutive sections have the same number.
You will soon find here more details about the tracks.

The event will take place on roads open to traffic. Traffic rules will have to be respected at all times. Time registration will be in place on three cobble stone sections.

* The zip of the helmet must be fastened at any time
A number of elements are also recommended:
For safety reasons, it is forbidden to participate in Paris-Roubaix Challenge with a bike equipped with extension elements (handlebar horns or "handlebar triathlete"). Likewise, lay-down bikes are not allowed in the Paris-Roubaix Challenge.
To protect the environment and the natural surroundings, it is strictly forbidden to dump waste (paper, plastic packaging ...) on the road or roadside. Bins will be installed at each food and drink station. They should be used by all participants and spectators.
The organization will install drop-out zones at specific points on the course that will be communicated to all participants over our the website.
At these zones, shuttle buses will be available for participants that cannot or do not want to continue their route. However, in case of injury, a competitor must drop out at one of the food and drink points implemented by the organization.
The transport (to Roubaix) from these zones will be available in a limited period of time. A time schedule is based on the communicated starting hours. Participants that leave the drop-out zones at a time past the communicated time schedule will have to reach the finish by their own means. Riders who pass the time schedule are no longer considered as participating in the course.
In case of material or physical damage disabling the participant to continue his/her route, he/she can use the emergency number that will be given at the collection booth in the Host Village. On calling the number, he/she will be picked-up and transported to the finish in Roubaix.
The Paris-Roubaix Challenge will take place on roads open to traffic, participants must follow the rules set by the Highway Code and evolve under their proper responsibility.
In the case of accidents produced under violation of the Highway Code the only responsible is the participant, whether he is the actor of, or is - direct or indirect - subject to an accident.

He acknowledges his vulnerability and accepts the risks inherent to the competition.
The organization will establish a security service throughout the course consisting of signalers who help at crossings indentified as major and/or hazardous and motorcyclists covering for the logistics. Personal following cars are strictly prohibited .
The medical staff, acting under the supervision of an approved civil security association, is perfectly able to decide on the disqualification of a competitor for medical reasons. Their advice therefore is firm; neglect of and opposition to the latter by the rider is at his own risk.
Civil liability insurance: in accordance with the legislation in force, the organization has taken out insurance covering the financial consequences of its civil liability, those of its officials and all the participants of the Paris-Roubaix Challenge. With regard to participants' civil liability, the cover provided by this insurance to the latter is limited to accidents which they may cause to third parties in the course.
Moreover, this cover will take effect in addition to other insurances which they might have or in the absence of an insurance of the same kind.
A copy of the insurance policy is available on request.
Personal accident insurance: all the participants of the Paris-Roubaix Challenge, be they license holders of a sports federation or not, can take out insurance as from now upon the collection of their race number at the latest. This will guarantee the settlement of a claim in the event of physical injury (death, permanent disability), due to an accident which has occurred on the race route, whether or not they are responsible, and whether or not a third party has been identified and/or is responsible .
Compensation, which is according to injuries, will take effect from the moment that the policyholder has suffered from an accident while participating in the sports event. This insurance is optional but is highly recommended. It can be taken out in addition to or in the absence of an insurance of the same kind provided in particular via a sports license.
The instruction and subscription form are available on the event's website (www.parisroubaixchallenge.com).
