The Chrono Champenois is a European individual time trial bicycle race held around Bétheny in France, in the Champagne region. The race has been organised as a 1.2 event since 1989 for women's and since 1998 there is also a men's race which is part of the UCI Europe Tour. The women's race is fully called: Chrono Champenois - Trophée Européen. The 2017 event was cancelled late in the season, with the organiser planning to hold the race again in 2018.[1]
