Tickets to the Rouleur Classic, the world’s finest road cycling exhibition, are now on sale.
Running from 2-4 November, the theme for this year’s Rouleur Classic is The Monuments, five legendary one-day races that are highlights of the season for true cycling fans. Rouleur Classic is officially partnered with all the race organisations and will be helping them bring the unique qualities of each race to London audiences – Milan-Sanremo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Tour of Lombardy.
