Paris Roubaix: Into the Forest

With the 28 cobbles to be conquered probably the most famous (and most difficult) is the stretch that goes straight through the famed Forest of Arenberg.  Like most of the cobbled sections of Paris Roubaix the stretch of road is only open to traffic once a year, and that one time is for this, the Hell of the North.  This is the eight riders of the early break mainly representing the Wild Card Teams of Bretagne-Seche Environnment, Net App-Endura, Topsport, and United Healthcare, although Lotto-Belisol and Tinkoff Saxo did make the break as well.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website at or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
