On Sunday the 8th of April, the bunch sets off for the 116th edition of Paris-Roubaix. The ‘Hell of the North’ 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 finish in the Roubaix Velodrome. Amounting to 257 kilometres, the 2018 edition features 29 stretches of pavé. (Slideshow route/profile)
Greg Van Avermaet is title holder. In 2017, the Olympic Champion claimed his first Monument as he outsprinted Zdenek Stybar and Sebastian Langeveld in the Roubaix Velodrome.
