    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-Nice 2018: sunshine for the Spanish riders David De La Cruz and Marc Soler in the final stage

    Paris-Nice 2018: sunshine for the Spanish riders David De La Cruz and Marc Soler in the final stageThe sun was definitely missing from the final part of Paris-Nice 2018 in Nice (despite the nickname of the race, the Race to the sun), with this stage of 110 kilometers which took place under the rain. If there were any sunrays, those were for the two Spanish riders who managed to get some good results out of this stage, David De la Cruz (Sky) for the stage win in a duo sprint and Marc Soler (Movistar) who wins the race thanks to the delay of the yellow jersey and the bonus seconds!

    The summary of the 8th and final stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Nice > Nice

    In this last stage, we had to wait until the climb of the Côte de Levens and the twentieth kilometer to see the first attacks, but this first breakaway didn't really work out. Once the bunch got back together, it fell apart in two parts, with a group of 24 riders ahead.
