Huge congratulations to our LONDON-PARIS 2017 winners. As if completing the 500km route wasn’t already enough, riders had General Classification, Sprint and Climbers jerseys to compete for, as well as the team and age group competitions.

The BikeRadar Women’s GC was dominated by young rider Isabel Ellis of Team Bäckstedt HotChillee, one to watch for the future. Closely followed by Kacey O’driscoll and Kim Bainbridge with strong performances over the long GC sections in group 2. The BikeRadar Men’s GC was hotly contested between Rocco King and Rossouw Bekker of Team Backstedt-HotChillee and Jeremy Honor from JCA/AF Switchgear. Eventually their teamwork prevailed with Rocco eventually victorious.
