On the world cycling map, some places appear in capital letters. Alpe d'Huez and Mont Ventoux are among them, as is the Stelvio in Italy, the Angliru in Spain and the Cauberg in The Netherlands. The review of these sites steeped in the history and soul of cycling inevitably stops at the Trouée d'Arenberg, which the peloton will take on this year at km 161.5. But 2.4km further, only some elite riders will still believe in their chances.

Pugnacity, daring and the feeling of sacrifice are the qualities the brave who attempt to survive the Hell of the North must have.

At the start line, they can only imagine what awaits them: the mud that they will have to cope with, the cobblestones that will rattle their bones or the “Trouée d'Arenberg” that at any moment...

On tackling the last 100 kilometres, the riders have “only” covered 17 kilometres of cobbles. The number of punctures and falls is already starting to mount and the Arenberg section, deadly to many a rider's hopes, is approaching.

On 9 April, for the 115th edition of the “Queen of the Classics”, the route the peloton will race on will comprise 55km of cobblestones (vs 52.8km in 2016), on the total distance of 257km between Compiègne and the Roubaix velodrome. The favourites are expected to stand out on the tranchée d'Arenberg, in Mons-en-Pévèle or at the Carrefour de l'Arbre… but early in the race they will also discover the Briastre (km112.5) and Solesmes (km 116) cobbled sections, which haven't been used...
