Riders In Paris

This year The London-Paris celebrates its tenth anniversary and, over the course of its life, team places have become highly sought after. HotChillee's events attract teams from across the globe, with participants from Hong Kong, South Africa and Australia to name a few. Many of the teams stem from individual participants from previous years wanting to get more involved in the event.

Teams consist of four riders and team members can ride across any of the seeded speed groups. The aggregate result for the best three riders' times for each yellow (GC) section is used to determine the team time. To qualify for the prestigious Best Team award, all riders must be in group 1 or 2 for the entire ride. Each year there is stiff competition for the Best Team award, which creates a great deal of camaraderie and friendly banter between contenders. Last year Team SiS took the win for the third time in as many years and are back for 2013.
