    Paris-Roubaix 2019: its race route, its cobble stones sections and other details of the Hell of the North

    Paris-Roubaix 2019: its race route, its cobble stones sections and other details of the Hell of the NorthThe queen of the classics, Paris-Roubaix 2019, will take this Sunday. For the 117th edition of the race, the organisor chose to slightly modify last year's race route: the start is a bit different, but this time also the 6 first cobble stones sections, between Troisvilles and Verchain-Maugré. The number of sections however remain the same (29) and there will still be a total distance of 54.5 kilometers of cobbles. The total distance of the race also remains the same, 257 kilometers.

    In the Hell of the North a small problem can however come disturb a rider's race, while others can be lucky. Nothing's thus defined beforehand and it'll be this Sunday on the cobbles that we'll see who manges to win the race ... which doesn't have a big favourite this year!

    Paris-Roubaix 2018: its race route, cobble stones sections and other details of the Hell of the North

    Paris-Roubaix 2018: its race route, cobble stones sections and other details of the Hell of the NorthThe queen of the classics, Paris-Roubaix 2018, will take place this Sunday. For the 116th edition of the race, the organisor decided to slightly modify last year's race route: the start has been modified, as well as the first cobble stones sections, with for example the comeback of the Saint-Python section. We still have the same number of cobble stones sections (29) but the total distance on cobbles is a little bit lower than last year, 54.5 kilometers instead of 55. The total number of kilometers of the race remains identical, 257 kilometers, but that's also due to the fact that the kilometer 0 of the race is a bit further from the start location!

    In the Hell of the North, any small detail can however come disturb the race for one of the riders or maybe the contrary, help another rider. So, nothing's sure beforehand: Sunday, everything will be decided on the cobbles ... with the Quick-Step riders being t ...

    Paris-Roubaix 2017: its race route, its cobble stones sections and the other details of the Hell of the North

    Paris-Roubaix 2017: its race route, its cobble stones sections and the other details of the Hell of the NorthThe queen of the classics, Paris-Roubaix 2017, will take place this Sunday. For the 115th edition of the race, the organisor decided to change the race route slightly compared to last year: the start is slightly different and two cobble stones sections which were not part of the race route since 1987 make their comeback. These additional sections, Briastre and Solesmes, make the total number of cobble stones sections grow to 29 and the number of cobbled kilometers to 55. However, since they are located quite early in the cobble stones programme of the race, this change should however not have any impact on the result of the race.

    In the Hell of the North, any small detail can however come disturb the race for one of the riders or maybe the contrary, help another rider. So, nothing's sure beforehand: Sunday, everything will be decided on the cobbles ...

    Team selections for the WorldTour races in France - A.S.O. (Tour de France, Paris-Nice and Critérium du Dauphiné) and in Italy - RCS (Giro d'Italia, Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo)

    Team selections for the WorldTour races in France - A.S.O. (Tour de France, Paris-Nice and Critérium du Dauphiné) and in Italy - RCS (Giro d'Italia, Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo)The 2017 cycling season is alive and kicking already and there have already been 4 UCI WorldTour* races this year and there are still 34 to come.

    As you know, the UCI WorldTour races can invite, in addition to the 18 UCI WorldTeams, other continental pro teams, with a so called wildcard. And all those races of course do that to come up with a nice and dense peloton starting in all of the races.

    The French (organised by A.S.O.) and Italian races (organised by RCS Sport) have already announced which teams they invited this year and hereunder you'll find the list for each of them.


    * yes indeed, in addition to the Santos Tour Down Under, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race is now the second Australian race on this prestigious calendar, and the Abu Dhabi Tour the third one, despite the fact that for the ...

    Mathew Hayman takes his most beautiful victory in Paris-Roubaix 2016 - summary

    Mathew Hayman takes his most beautiful victory in Paris-Roubaix 2016 - summaryThere were two big favorites at the start of the 114th edition of Paris-Roubaix: Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) and Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo). Even though other riders were "marked" as well, we were pretty much expecting these two guys to be present in the decisive part of the race. While a breakaway with some strong guys was leading the race, a crash in the peloton however made an end to the dream of these two favorites because they ended up in the second part of the peloton and were no longer able to catch up with the breakaway which merged with a part of the first peloton. A crash even definitively brings an end to the dream of a good classification in the Queen stage of the classics for Fabian Cancellara.

    The selection on the cobble stones sections ends up by with a small group of 5 coureurs, Tom Boonen, Luke Rowe, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Sep Vanmarcke and Mathew Hayman and it becomes evident at about twenty

    The participants list for Paris-Roubaix 2016 and their bib numbers

    The participants list for Paris-Roubaix 2016 and their bib numbersTomorrow, 199 riders of 25 different teams will start in Compiègne for 257.5 kilometers of racing, including 52.8 kilometers on cobble stones (see the Paris-Roubaix 2016 race route on Google Maps). This will be the 114th edition of Paris-Roubaix and it will start without last year's winner, John Degenkolb ...

    Starting in Compiègne, the weather should be dry but potentially still with some fog which will disappear progressively. While early this week the weather reports still mentioned rain during the race (which would have been a first since several years!), this will finally not be the case and the riders will thus get on the cobbles towards Roubaix under a dry sky, but without much sun.

    Paris-Roubaix 2016: its race route, its cobble stones sections and the other details of the Hell of the North

    Paris-Roubaix 2016: its race route, its cobble stones sections and the other details of the Hell of the NorthThe queen of the classics,; Paris-Roubaix 2016, will take place this Sunday. For the 114th edition of the race, the organisor chose to keep a similar route as the 2015 race route (which was identical to the 2013 race route) when the race was won by John Degenkolb, but there's one modification: the cobble stones section number 22, Verchain-Maugré, has been turned in for the Capelle-Ruesnes section which is partially uphill at the "Hameau du Buat". Situated in the first part of the cobble stones programme, this change shouldn't have a real impact on the result of the race.

    In the Hell of the North all small things can however come disturb the race for one of the riders or maybe the contrary, help another one. So, nothing's sure beforehand: Sunday everything will be decided on the cobbles ...

    John Degenkolb wins the 'pavé' of Paris-Roubaix 2015!

    John Degenkolb wins the 'pavé' of Paris-Roubaix 2015!John Degenkolb (Team Giant-Alpecin) probably dreamed as much of it as Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky). While the British rider would have hoped to end his professional cycling career on a victory at Paris-Roubaix, the Germand rider kept in mind the bad taste of the second place last year. As one of the riders in a small groupe of 7 riders at the entrance of the Vélodrome in Roubaix, John Degenkolb showed his sprinters qualities and thus managed to cross the finish line first when the breakaway crossed it for the second time on the track!

    The summary of Paris-Roubaix 2015

    After several unsuccessful breakaway attempts,, nine riders formed today's breakaway after an attack at kilometer 34 under the sun which was shining on the roads of Paris-Roubaix 2015 today!

    In this group we found Gregory Rast (Trek Factory Racing), Adam Bly ...
