Sigma Sport riders enter the first pavé section on the Dunkerque-Roubaix 2014
As well as rolling road closures, full mechanical and medical support, motorbike outriders and HotChillee Ride Captains the 165km route includes 9 pavé sections of the coveted Paris-Roubaix. Riders will be split into speed groups and can compete in the flagged race section which includes five pavé sections and finishes on the Carrefour de l’Arbre.
Riders will finish in the iconic Roubaix Velodrome and have use of the legendary showers before drinks in the bar which is steeped in cycling history.
Geraint Thomas will be joined by Tour de France legend Stephen Roche who won the Junior Paris-Roubaix in 1980.

Founder of HotChillee Sven Thiele: “This will become a weekend away for the hard men and women of the peloton. Riding cobbles never mind contesting flagged sections is something that at the time one views almost as an out of body folly…and then the satisfaction of finishing with comrades in the legendary Roubaix stadium brought a tear to even the seasoned Magnus Backstedt.”
Entries will open at 2pm (GMT) on Wednesday 12 November 2014 via the web site www.dunkerque-roubaix.com. Event date 25/26 April 2015. The basic entry is £495 which includes full entry, accommodation and celebrity dinner on the Saturday night, breakfast, lunch, Roubaix finish line celebration, bike and bus transportation from Roubaix back to Dunkerque.
