Hello all,

Has any one done the Paris Roubaix sportive? The one where you ride most of the event and even do a lap of the velodrome? Fancy a challenge and this looks like it would be that! Can you point me in the direction of who organises the trip google is popping up quite a few options!

Thanks

That's not actually the one where you finish in the velodrome (at least it didn't last year). the link is to a newer event run by ASO. This is the original one, it's cheaper and definitely finishes in the velodrome:

Haven't done either but planning the velodrome finsh event next year

The link i put up does finish in the velodrome

Quote:

All riders must cross the Finish line at " Velodrome de Roubaix " to have a final ranking

It is also sanctioned and run by ASO

Thanks for the links, I know there was some issues this year sections missing on velodrome finish on the Aso event. Hope this is sorted for next year  4

You need the VC Roubaix event which is run in June and not the soft-tapping, spendy version from ASO which misses out all the best bits. The VC Roubaix event supports the maintenance of the parcours too.
