Paris-Roubaix 2012

The 2012 staging of Paris-Roubaix will be as keenly contested as ever, with the peloton eager to test themselves in a gruelling race that is illustratively nicknamed ‘The Hell of the North’. With a history dating back to 1896 it is one of the oldest and most prestigious of the spring classics and is famed for its cobbles and the numerous incidents that those sectors often produce.

Last year, it was Belgium’s Johan Vansummeren won ahead of 2010 winner Fabian Cancellara, whose victory twelve months prior was part of an astonishing run of form.
