Coming April 16, 2022. Who will be crowned Queen of the Cobbles? The Paris-Roubaix Femmes is the women’s edition of the famed Paris-Roubaix, one of cycling oldest races, first held in 1896. This year marks the second time that this one day women’s peloton takes place. Nicknamed l’enfer du Nord, or Hell of the North, the 117 kilometre course consists of rough terrain, mud, and a grueling 29.2 kilometres of cobbled roads (pavé). Twenty-four teams from 12 countries will compete in this epic race held in northern France, starting north of Paris and finishing in Roubaix, at the border with Belgium. Watch the pros compete in the challenging Paris-Roubaix Femmes.
