On Sunday the 9th of April, the bunch sets off for the 115th edition of Paris-Roubaix. It’s the third of five Monuments on the cycling calendar, adding up to 257 kilometres in 2017. Also known as the ‘Hell of the North’, Paris-Roubaix is one of the oldest and one of the most difficult one-day races. Upcoming edition serves a hearty meal with riders having to endure 55 kilometres of cobbled sectors before the finish in the Roubaix Velodrome. (Slideshow route/profile)
