CCC Events for 2019 are selling NOW

“Phils’ infectious passion for the incomparable beauty and power of nature is an inspiration. This event proved to each of us how following your dream can ultimately bring fulfilment and success.”
Oliver Duggan writing in The Guardian

“Riding a CCC gave me time to reflect on a lot of things in my life…. Thank you Phil. I look at cycling a little differently now. Your events really prove that we are capable of doing a lot more than we think we can!!! I will be back.”

“2019 marks the tenth anniversary of the Cent Cols Challenge but also the first of the “Final Four (Phil) Years” of the CCC : I will retire from these events in 2022, with some regret, obviously. See below on this page for the list of planned events up to 2022. Each year will include at least one event that will run for the last time : next year it will be the final CCC Dolomites. I will savour every kilometre with those of you present! And the CCC post-2022 ? Who knows?! “

NEW FOR 2019

Starting with the choicest climbs around La Roche en Ardenne, this event offers a chance to discover THE BEST OF LUXEMBOURG and concludes by taking on the finale climbs of L-B-L, as it returns into Belgium. Two Belgian stages book-end three full stages in Luxembourg to discover it’s abundant ultra-smooth tarmac and it’s Alpine-style ups & downs. Highly recommended for some early ‘mountain’ training!

“ I find these events go way beyond physical capabilities. You need to engage a mental attitude on par with the road ahead of you. Never expect or accept an easy option.” CCC rider Pyrenees 2014. “ Undertaking the CCC Sothern Alps (both the training and riding the event itself) has been a bit of a game changer for me. It really did challenge me, highlighting my weaknesses and limitations as a cyclist but at the same time it has given me great confidence and deepened my passion for the sport.”

“ a CCC is not a souvenir magnet to fix on your fridge to show off, it’s a complete inner experience which only a few will manage to complete and fully understand. CCC does not happen outwards, it’s all inwards.”
