£18.00

“The Hell of the North” - is the nickname given to the One-Day Classic Paris-Roubaix. Although a brutal race, the moniker comes from the first edition of the race following World War I. Roubaix saw the worst of the conflict. In 1919, the cyclists racing from Paris to Roubaix experienced firsthand the horrifying aftermath of the Great War. Journalists afterwards reportedly heard racers saying, “They’d been through hell.”
