Another star signed up for the event is Swedish former professional cyclist Magnus Backstedt, who won Paris-Roubaix in 2004 and a stage of the 1998 Tour de France, and now has his own team, MagnusMaximusCoffee.com.

Billed as a "unique Tour de France-style endurance event for amateur and cyclosportive riders", the ride covers 550km in three days, with a rest day in Paris. Next year's event starts on 24 June. Registration opens on 30 November at www.londres-paris.com.

Romero said: "It's obviously a longer distance than I'm used to but that's what appeals to me. London-Paris 2010 will be one of my key targets for next year and I'm really looking forward to the challenge."
