Classics To Be Another Prestigious Event

The event, Tour de France is going to start in the city of Yorkshire before it comes down to the capital city in July. This event is considered to be the most important jewel in the crown of the elite cyclists. Besides this event and the rest Grand Tours, Classics has proved to be the most prestigious event in sports.

All of these events are difficult one day events which also have the infamous Paris-Roubaix who is also known as the “Hell of the North”, which compels the riders to ride over the stony paths of Northern France leading towards frontier of Belgian. The previous year the introductory Prudential RideLondon helped out the city of London and Surrey on the map of elite cyclist’s map and displayed a series of expert racing of bikes. It was the event where 148 top cyclists from 25 teams had come down to the capital city.

Arnaud Demare, who is a Frenchman and a part of the FDJ team, reached the line at the earliest on The Mall. On the other hand 131 participants could finish the difficult route. This route was quite different from the route of the Olympic Road Cycling in 2012 which had started from Queen Elizabeth Olympic park.

A similar path will be followed by the Classics as that of Ride London Surrey 100 but it will have other deviations in the path so as to provide a new thrill and excitement in the race which will be of 124 miles. This will also adhere to the UCI pro requirements.

A similar route is intended to be followed by the London Classic as that done by London Surry. The only additional difference will be on the twists and curves incorporated in the road map which will help to a spectacle of a distance of 124 miles and this would also meet the prescribed requirements.
