A Day in Hell

Sunday 14th April 2019

Rapha’s tribute to the Queen of the Classics returns for its tenth edition.

28 February 2019


It’s the highlight of the season for many, an exercise in lunacy for some; the Queen of the Classics is a race like no other. In tribute to the great race, every April we celebrate A Day in Hell, riding routes inspired by the cobbles and battle-scarred landscapes of Northern France.


At Clubhouses around the world, Rapha will host an array of rides on Sunday the 14th of April, each inspired by Roubaix but with a unique local flavour. Feel the same startline anticipation, road vibration and complete elation on your own Day in Hell. A portion of tickets for each event will be reserved for members of the Rapha Cycling Club.


Made to withstand a Day in Hell, our dedicated collection takes inspiration from the great race’s cobbled parcours and its devilish difficulty in a special limited edition design celebrating ten years of the event.

In locations around the world, we pitch ourselves against tough parcours on the roughest of our local roads, emulating our heroes on the bike and watching them compete en route to the velodrome in the race proper.
