Despite lacking anything even remotely approaching an ascent over its 253.5km length Paris-Roubaix is reckoned to be the hardest race in the calendar. A total of 55km of pavé - rough cobblestone farm roads dating back to Napoleonic times - ensure that the course is incredibly demanding in the dry, and even worse if it's wet.
The race gained it's 'Hell of the North' nickname after the First World War laid waste to much of the region that it traverses but the gruelling surfaces, which pass through now abandoned coal-mining communities, and the iconic finish in the unglamorous Roubaix velodrome give every win of this 'Queen of the Classics' instantly legendary status.
