fire and cobblestone
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.
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.
