NEW DATE

IMPORTANT

Due to the date of the first round of the french presidential election, the date of Paris Roubaix has been postponed to April 17th. 

So we decided to follow the same réflexion and to keep the Bootleggers the day before the pro race.

The new date of our event is now Saturday April 16th.

2020 EDITION CANCELLED

Saturday, September 26, 2020

Due to new COVID-19 restrictions, we decided to cancelled the 24th october edition.

Next race on April 10th 2021.
Thanks for your support.

FINAL 2020 DATE

Tuesday, May 05, 2020

(French version below)

Dear Bootleggers,

The COVID-19 crisis impacts our date of July 18th one more time, so we decide to change for the last time the date of this event. Why ?

  • Crossing 2 countries doubles the constraints about the COVID-19 regulations, too many doubts remain about being able to welcome you in good conditions.

  • Paris Roubaix 2020 will finally take place on Octobre 25th 2020 (source UCI/ASO). The Bootleggers is attached to this mythic race, so you will be able to see the day after an historic race !

  • The Bootleggers used to start the season of Ultra races, this year it will close it !

  • We would like to honor our partners and keep our commitments in Odile who will welcome you at The Salons de Felix, start and finish spot.

  • A Bootlegger never gives up !

 

Chers Bootleggers,

La crise du COVID-19 impacte à nouveau notre date du 18 juillet, nous décidons donc de changer une dernière fois la date de cet événement. Pourquoi ?

  • Notre course à travers 2 pays double les contraintes par rapport aux régulations vis à vis du COVID-19, beaucoup d’incertitudes subsistent sur la possibilité de vous accueillir dans de bonnes conditions

  • Le Paris Roubaix 2020 aura finalement lieu le 25 octobre (source UCI/ASO). La Bootleggers est attachée à cette course mythique, vous pourrez donc assister le lendemain à un Paris Roubaix d’anthologie !

  • La Bootleggers a l’habitude de démarrer la saison des courses Ultra, cette année elle la cloturera !

  • Nous voulions honorer nos partenaires 2-11cycles, René Herse, Chiru Bikes, Hunt, Komoot, Stoots, Aptonia, WPL, Andrea Braga et Mohawk’s cycle et tenir nos engagements vis à vis d’Odile qui vous accueillera aux Salons de Felix, lieu de départ et d’arrivée de l’épreuve.

  • Un Bootleggers n’abandonne jamais !
