VIDEO: The Lapierre Cycle Classics

The Lapierre Cycle Classics sportives are modelled on the three most exciting and iconic one-day Classics on the professional Calendar: Paris-Roubaix, the Tour of Flanders and the Strade Bianche respectively. 

They are not primarily based around big climbs, as many sportives are, but rather on variations in surface: the long flat gravel and cobbled sectors of the Tour of the Black Country, which mimic Paris-Roubaix; the short, steep Flanders-like cobbled climbs of the Cheshire Cobbled Classic; the white gravel and chalk roads of the White Roads Classic, which replicate the Italian strade bianche.

Each of these surfaces provides a unique riding experience, but common to all of them is the enhanced sensation of speed and the adrenaline that riding on unpaved roads delivers. The Lapierre Classics Series captures the epic quality of these famous races, and gives you a real sense of what riding them is like.
