The Hell of the North, a Sunday in hell

The Queen of the Classics. The Easter Race. The Hell of the North. The latter nickname reveals the true story of the legendary cobbled classic held in the northern region of France, Paris-Roubaix. It has become famous for its rough terrain of dust, mud and brutal pavé, and for one of the most iconic finish lines in the world of cycling, the Roubaix Velodrome.

Created in 1896, Paris-Roubaix isn’t the longest or the oldest event in the calendar, but it’s held in high esteem by many riders and fans alike, who wait for that special Sunday in April, when the 200 riders lining out for this extraordinary challenge descend into hell for six grueling hours at the end of which only one of them takes the glory and the famous cobblestone-shaped trophy, which many pundits have claimed it’s enough to define one’s career.

No less than four times (2005, 2008, 2009, 2012) has “Monsieur Paris-Roubaix” Tom Boonen, under the banner of Deceuninck - Quick-Step, roared victorious over the finish in Roubaix’s legendary André-Pétrieux velodrome, just like Niki Terpstra took an epic win for our team at the 2014 edition of the cobbled Monument.

Our riders have tamed the famous pavé, be it the Troisvilles, Arenberg Forest, Mons-en-Pévèle or Carrefour de l’Arbre sector, and from next year you too can feel what it’s like to ride over roads that have remained unchanged since pre-WW1 days. With us, you’re just a few clicks away from one of the best days of your life!


Testimonials 

Pierangelo - Italy 
It was an incredible weekend. We were in very close contact with the team and we enjoyed fantastic access. Now I understand why these guys win so many races. They are real, authentic! I never thought I’d be able to dine with them or to be able to get ready in the Motorhome or understand. how operations work within a team…and it really happened! It’s an experience I will definitely try again. Cycling is my passion. The chance to get an inside glimpse of the team that is considered unbeatable on cobblestones was priceless. These guys are incredible professionals but they are also very amiable. I ate with them, trained with them and experienced a few hours following them closely in such a significant race. In the end, I felt like I was a part of something important and I felt especially welcome in #TheWolfpack family!
