Team Artivelo at the start of Paris Roubaix Challenge 2016
On April 9, 2016, the tour version of Paris Roubaix or the hell of the North takes place. One day before the Pros start, is on Saturday, April 9, the Paris-Roubaix Challenge on the agenda. 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 full length 170km route features 28 sections of pavé, with each one given a star rating to indicate difficulty. Team Artivelo are riding the longest version with 51.2 km of illustrious paved zones, like the Wallers and the Carrefour de l’Arbre. The finish is on the famous Vélodrome André Pétrieux of Roubaix.
