Hell is hereby officially present
Paris-Roubaix: just the title alone is enough to conjure goosebumps. Undisputed as a classic, the commonly known ‘Hell of the North’ is one of the most heralded races on the cycling calendar.
Taking place between Paris and the town of Roubaix on the French – Belgian border just north of Lille, comes 260km of winding roads full of cobblestones, mud and rough-as-hell terrain. For the winners, godlike status awaits.
In 2019, Specialized brought out the brand new Roubaix for their teams and athletes at the event. The result? 8 of the top 10 bikes at the hell of the north were Specialized Roubaixs, including the winner, Philippe Gilbert. And at RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley, you could ride one.
We are delighted to confirm that Specialized will be bringing a fleet of their best bikes to the event, including the all new hell-conquering Roubaix. Make sure you register now to try out this monster of a bike as well as their full range of bikes that will be available for demo over the weekend.
If Saturday pre-ride registration and classics-conquering bikes are your thing, we’ll see you for a fiesta of cycling on June 22, 2019. Allez!
