PARIS-ROUBAIX RACE REVIEW

CLICK HERE FOR
HISTORICAL RANKINGS
IN PARIS-ROUBAIX
4/21/2014 – First held in 1896, the "Queen of the Classics" is held every April in northern France. The course is, on average 165 miles (265km) and includes significant sections of cobblestones. Because of the large cobblestone sections in the race and the rough ride over them, it has been dubbed the "The Hell of the North". The race is a brutal test of power, endurance, agility and luck. The course is very difficult in the best of weather. With rain, it becomes a quagmire of men and machines trying to navigate unseen obstacles beneath the water and mud.
