A sunny Sunday in Hell

The eighth edition of Rapha’s annual Hell of the North tribute saw 300 riders take to the lanes of North London and Hertfordshire.

With 200 entries reserved for Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) members and a further 100 for all-comers, spaces were hotly-contested and sold out within two hours.

Thirty gravé secteurs challenged riders on a 90km course devilishly devised by RCC member Dominique Gabellini.

Finishing up at the pub with a well-earned beer and frites, riders enjoyed the conclusion of this year’s Paris-Roubaix after their own Sunday in Hell.

Relive our tribute to the Hell of the North with pictures from the day by RCC member Dan Glasser.
