    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 ...

    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 103rd 'Doyenne'!

    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 103rd 'Doyenne'!In 1892 the very first edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège took place, which logically gives this race the nickname La Doyenne (the oldest one). That was 125 years ago and this year we'll see the 103rd edition of the Belgian classic which will take place between Liège, Bastogne and ... Ans (finish location of the race since 1992). You can always read the history of Liège-Bastogne-Liège which I published in the article about the race route of the 100th edition in 2014.

    The Amstel Gold Race 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleThis Sunday, the only Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, which will take place between Maastricht and ... the Rijksweg in Vilt. Indeed, since 2013, the finish is no longer on top of the Cauberg in Valkenburg but at the same location as where the finish of the races of the 2012 World Championships took place.

    The race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2017 - the 52nd edition of the race - is a little bit different from last year and the race now contains two additional climbs (and one less climb of the Cauberg, which brings the total number of climbs to 35), in the race route of this race which is part of the UCI WorldTour (in 2011 the number of climbs went up from 31 to 32 and in 2012 it went back down to 31, before going up to 34 in 2013 and now thus 35 in 20

    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 ...
