Billed as ‘the world’s finest cycling exhibition’, the Rouleur Classic show will in 2017 once again play host to some of the most esteemed names from cycling’s present and past. Taking place on 2-4 November, at Victoria House, London, UK, Rouleur Classic is a ‘unique opportunity for cycling fans to brush shoulders with the finest cycling talent in the world.’
Joining the previously announced Classics legends Johan Museeuw, Peter Van Petegem and Nico Mattan, is another stellar assemblage of cycling heroes, including the winner of seven Monuments, Gore apparel ambassador Fabian Cancellara, and multiple Grand Tour champion Alberto Contador, who will be attending in association with Polartec. Both riders will be discussing their careers and talking about their lives outside of the peloton.
Another very special guest attending the event will be Felice Gimondi, winner of multiple Monuments and Grand Tours during cycling’s golden era.
Other riders confirmed to be in attendance include 2017 Women’s Tour of Britain Champion Kasia Niewiadoma, 2016 British National Champion Adam Blythe, Lotto Soudal rider Adam Hansen, who has just completed his 18th consecutive Grand Tour, and Tour de France runner-up and Storck brand ambassador Andreas Klöden. Roger Hammond will also be attending. More guests will be announced over the coming months.
Following last year’s success, the Voxwomen Rider of the Year award returns to the Rouleur Classic to honour the standout riders from the Women’s World Tour with the addition of a fan vote.
Fan favourite, Ned Boulting will again be on hosting duty, conducting Q&A sessions with the riders and ‘getting to the heart of all you could ever want to know about the pro peloton’. He’ll be sharing the role with Eurosport’s Jonathan Edwards and Sky’s Orla Chennouai amongst other prominent names.
A limited number of early-bird tickets are still available starting from £20.
