Parijs Roubaix is the toughest race in the world's when it comes to cycle racing.

The cyclers will cover 254 km in 27 segments, with a total 53 km of cobblingstone roads. The famous cobblingstone strip 'La Drève des Boules d'Herin' is part of this race. This strip was build during the period Napoleon reigned.

Maarten wanted to capture the emotions of the cyclers before they went out for battle and after they finished the tour. Their faces speak for themselves.
