Can I Survive A Pro Level Recon Of Paris-Roubaix?

Published on April 16th 2022


Paris-Roubaix, or The Hell Of The North is often regarded as the hardest one-day race in the pro calendar, and is one that our own Conor Dunne never managed to ride when he was a professional, and that's something of a regret. But just how hard is it? Can Conor keep up with a World Tour men's team? Fizik sent us out to join AG2R-Citroën on their recon ride so Conor can get a real taste of the cobbles!
