The LONDON-PARIS is a multi stage endurance road cycling event consisting of flagged race sections with tempo riding between. The format allows for ample racing in the race groups, social tempo riding and interaction between the flagged sections with the “Ride” level groups more focused on completing the endurance nature of the event. The flagged race sections cover sprinting, climbing and over all time (general classification).

General Classification (GC) Competition
