In immersion in The Hell of the North:
PARIS – Roubaix sportive & race viewing 

It’s the queen of the classics. Since 1896, Paris-Roubaix has been the most spectacular cycling race in the world. Here it is the length, repetition and irregularity of the cobblestones that make this race so unique. Veymont takes you to an introduction to the track in the new Roubaix velodrome, then you experience your Paris-Roubaix with the sportive Paris-Roubaix Challenge: Arenberg, le Carrefour de l’Arbre and Roubaix’s mythical velodrome. Finally, on the day of the pro race, it is in the paved sector of the Carrefour de l’Arbre, key point of the race, about 15 km from the finish, that you will view the riders passing on their way to glory. Rready to challenge the Hell of the North ?
