Starting 12 years ago with a "how hard can it be" attitude the famous HotChillee LONDON-PARIS has developed into a cult "must do" event. The unique pro experience of enjoying rolling road closures into the centre of Paris a week before the Tour de France starts is always emotional.
It is renowned for not only being a demanding endurance event but also the exceptional camaraderie and now legendary Ride Captains.
Each stage includes flagged race sections where riders can compete for either the yellow, red or green Leader's Jerseys.
Stars who have completed the LONDON-PARIS include:
The LONDON-PARIS is restricted to 400 riders and is supported by 250 crew, motorbike outriders, masseurs, paramedics, mechanics and neutral service team, and is known as the closest an amateur can get to experiencing the Tour de France.
Our objective remains to create intense sporting experiences with rigorous attention to safety and logistics. The Daily Telegraph named the LONDON-PARIS as one of the top 25 participation events in the world, alongside the NYC and London marathons.
At the heart of the LONDON-PARIS is our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme. Our cyclists, partners and sponsors have helped charities all over the world. Their desire to work for a better world strikes a chord with us and knowing that everything we raise goes directly to the beneficiaries is truly refreshing. We have been associated with several charities since 2004:
