One of cycling’s monuments, Paris-Roubaix is the grand-daddy of spring classics. With its infamous, rough, cobblestone farm roads, notorious weather and punishing speeds, the race lives up to its moniker l’enfer du Nord or “Hell of the North.”

Graham Watson has been photographing the race since the 1980s, and he shares a few of his best shots here.
