Paris-Roubiax, the most famous one day race in the world, will bring back the brutal amateur Paris Roubaix Challenge cyclosportive on Saturday 8 April 2023 using the same roads the pros ride. It is a bucket-list ride every amateur should do once – or twice if you survive the first one.

Registration is open now, but starting bibs are limited. The event takes place on the same weekend as the pro Paris-Roubiax races, making it a great opportunity to spend a classic weekend in Roubaix, riding the 170 kilometers long cyclosportive with 50km of cobbled sectors on Saturday and then watch the pro men race on Sunday.

The Paris Roubaix Challenge takes you over all of the hardest cobbled (and potentially muddy) sectors on the ‘Hell of the North” route, finishing in the historic velodrome in Roubaix, just like the pros. If 170km seems a daunting, 70km and 145km versions are also available.
