Madison, WI (12/12/2016) — Trek Travel, a leader in cycling vacations around the globe, announces a new partnership with cycling legend, Fabian Cancellara during the 2017 Spring Classics bike race. A new addition to Trek Travel’s “Legend Collection”, Fabian, known as Spartacus, will join guests in Belgium to share his knowledge of the Paris Roubaix race, enjoy dinner and drinks while fielding questions, and ride alongside guests on the roads that made him famous in the professional cycling ranks. Trek Travel’s role as Official Tour Operator to the Trek-Segafredo cycling team allows for incredible race access at the events as well as to the cyclists themselves.
A three-time champion at both Paris Roubaix and Tour of Flanders, Olympic gold medalist, and multiple stage winner of the Tour de France, there’s no one better to give an inside look at the Spring Classics than Spartacus himself. The Spring Classics inspire reverence among cycling’s hardcore elite. They combine drama, savagery, pageantry and suffering. Trek Travel takes impassioned fans directly to the famous roads of these elite one-day races in the spring of 2017.
Trek Travel guests will join up in Belgium and Northern France to ride the famed cobbles, sip coveted Trappist beer, and enjoy a VIP race experience. They will tackle Flanders’ fearful sections of pavé like Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg in the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo, then watch the pros battle on the same steep climbs and teeth-chattering roads. If they are up for a test, more cobbles and treachery await at the Paris-Roubaix Challenge. This incredible 11-day experience culminates at Paris-Roubaix, with VIP seats inside the velodrome to watch as another “Hell of the North” competitor crosses the line victorious.
Taking place from March 31- April 10, 2017, guests can choose to join for just the Tour of Flanders (March 31-April 4) or Paris-Roubaix (April 6-10), or opt for the entire 11-day ultimate experience including meeting Fabian Cancellara. The cost of the trip is $3799 to $7999 per person based on double occupancy. For further information contact Trek Travel at 1-866-464-8735 or visit www.trektravel.com
