Other HotChillee Events...

HotChillee has been specialising in pro style events since 2003. Starting with the famous London-Paris that developed into the Global Event Series with the addition of the Alpine Challenge and Cape Rouleur we now take pleasure in presenting Dunkerque-Roubaix with Geraint Thomas.

The Alpine Challenge The Dunkerque Roubaix The London-Paris London to Brighton Cygnature Team Charity Cycle Challenge

We love great, authentic locations and Roubaix is probably the next best finish venue after the Champs Elysee, Arc de Triomphe in the centre of Paris. A single day event with massive historical significance.

Designed using the same formula as The London-Paris; rolling road closures, professional support and unforgettable riding experiences the event has become another welcome addition to the summer cycling calendar.
