On Sunday 12 April the bunch was scheduled to set off for the 118th edition of Paris-Roubaix, but the ‘Hell of the North’ has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The race 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. The 30 sectors of pavé on this year’s route will add up to 55 kilometres, while the total route amounts to 259 kilometres. (Slideshow route/profile)
