Also, known as the ‘Hell of the North’, Paris Roubaix is one of the oldest and one of the most difficult one day races with riders having to endure a daunting gauntlet of cobbled sectors before the race finish in the Roubaix Velodrome.
A perfect blend of positioning, power and tactical nous are required if a rider is to lift the famous cobblestone trophy awarded to the victor, not too mention a large slice of luck. Given the conditions, mechanical issues are unavoidable in Roubaix, the timing of which can be the difference between winning and losing.
