Big names from world of pro cycling at Rouleur Live – Endurance.Biz

An impressive line-up has been confirmed for November’s Rouleur Live show, billed as ‘the world’s finest cycling exhibition’.

Stars of the men’s and women’s professional pelotons past and present will be in London on November 4-6, 2021. These include: Vincenzo Nibali, Geraint Thomas, Anna van der Breggen, Emma Norsgaard and the newly crowned British Road Race Champion Pfeiffer Georgi to name a few.

‘Tickets for the event, the first return to a live, in-person event for the cycling industry in the capital since before COVID hit, are selling fast with star-studded line-ups across each of the three days. Guests will be hosted on stage in the theatre at London’s Victoria House to talk all things cycling and their experiences over the years in front of a live audience.’

Following the early announcement of former Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas and one of the legends of women’s cycling, the recently retired Anna van der Breggen as headliners, a whole host of new names have since been unveiled.

Both Thomas and Van der Breggen will join visitors on day three, Saturday, alongside classics legend Fabian Cancellara, UNBOUND Gravel Race winner Ian Boswell and former professional and face of Eurosport Cycling, Juan Antonio Flecha.

Former winner of all three Grand Tours and current professional Vincenzo Nibali will be on stage on Friday alongside the prestigious young Danish sprint talent Emma Norsgaard of Movistar, on Thursday. A star of the peloton and multiple classics winner during the 90s and early 200’s, Andrea Tafi will also be present on Friday as well as another recent retiree in Nico Roche.

The first day of the event, Thursday, will be equally as busy with former sprint star Marcel Kittel joining French Grand Tour contender and multiple stage winner, Romain Barde, as well as the new British road race champion, Pfeiffer Georgi. While it’s not just those who’ve spent time racing bikes who feature, with a name more akin to producing bikes for the world’s best riders, Fausto Pinarello, also on stage on Thursday.

‘Formerly known as Rouleur Classic, this year the show‘s name has been changed to Rouleur Live to better reflect what it is – the embodiment of the magazine in an exhibition format.’

An impressive list of exhibitors will feature at the event bringing together a plethora of bikes, the latest tech, gear and gadgets as well as some new product launches too. The list of brands on display includes BMC with its Masterpiece bike, Cervélo and its latest R5 bike as ridden by Wout van Aert much of this season; Pinarello and its Grand Tour winning bikes; Ribble’s aerodynamic Ultra SL R and more.

Some machines from the gravel scene will also be on show at the event, which once again features a specific Gravel Gallery, sponsored by Panaracer.

Specialized’s new Crux – claimed to be the lightest gravel bike in the world – will feature alongside bikes from Scott, BMC, Ribble, 3T and Norway’s FARA with a new launch.

Changing for this year is a flattened price structure across all three days, with tickets at £40 which includes a complimentary drink. This gives full access to the Rouleur Live Theatre across each day as well as the halls showcasing an array of memorabilia and innovation from leading brands. A season pass is also available for all three days, priced at £100.
