Paris-Roubaix Spectator Itinerary

Race day: Paris – Roubaix 2021

Our experienced staff will meet you at 7.45am at the Gare du Nord, Paris. From Paris, it is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach Compiègne where we will see the riders prepare for the race start.

Hell of the North

Raced during Spring, where the weather can be variable, sometime they’re mild days as well as cold days. Either way, dusty cobbles are just as slippery as wet cobbles.

The race starts around 11am from Compiègne. After seeing riders sign-on and head out, we begin our chase.

We drive to our first cobblestone area where we will see the race pass over along and difficult section of pavé (cobblestones), as well as enjoy our picnic lunch.

Through the afternoon we will visit several other sections of pave along the route and we’ll see up close difficult conditions that take their toll on the riders as the day wears on.
