Paris Roubaix 1896 | Cycling Art Print

Queen of the Classics

The Paris-Roubaix race first ran in 1896 and has been torturing cyclists ever since. It is known as “The Hell of the North” because of the difficult road and weather conditions that rage throughout the area. With cobblestone sectors and wind-swept fields, this “Queen of the Classics” is an annual favorite among cycling fans everywhere, and a right of passage for any likely classics champion.

The Hell of the North – Paris Roubaix Poster

One of the oldest races in cycling, Paris Roubaix is the “Queen” of the Classics. It is also affectionately known as “The Hell of the North” and “A Sunday in Hell” for its grueling and challenging route on rough terrain and cobbled pathways. I’ve always been a fan.

The Queen of the Classics

Paris-Roubaix is such a special day it requires a special print. The prints have the look of vintage lithography, a style of printing made very popular during the height of the cycling posters era. I can not completely duplicate (yet) lithography printing but this has a similar look of that time period.

If you browse the gallery images you can follow the stages of drawing I went through to complete the work.

Paris-Roubaix Pavé  | Valenti Cycling Art Print
Paris-Roubaix Pavé | Valenti Cycling Art Print

It’s all about the cobblestones.

The Pavé (Cobblestones), make up a vital part of the Paris-Roubaix race route. With stones as large as “baby heads” according to the Belgians, these brutal, rural roads just eat bicycles, wheels and riders. Saved from the horrible fate of being smoothed over with asphalt, the pavé are here to stay.

Paris-Roubaix just wouldn’t be the same without the stones. This print was made from an original watercolor painting.

You can find this Watercolor Art Print without the type here.

Trouée d’Arenberg  | Valenti Cycling Art Print
Trouée d’Arenberg | Valenti Cycling Art Print

The entrance to hell.

The Trouée d’Arenberg or Tranchée de Wallers-Arenberg is a 2.3 km long cobbled road in the municipality of Wallers in Northern France, in the Département Nord. – Ha!

But it’s so much more than that, it is a beast of a cobbled road in the heart of the Paris-Roubaix classic, a killer of a road, a game maker or breaker. Since it’s inclusion into the Hell of the North the Arenberg trench has changed the outcome of many, many races. Ghastly at best, simply diabolical at it’s wet and muddy worst.

I painted this image on a calm spring morning with sunshine and happiness, it still destroyed the peloton. Man I love this race.

Paris-Roubaix Stones | Valenti Cycling Art Print

You must love the stones!

The cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix have been reeking havoc on riders since 1896. This spring monument leaves no room for the weak. Wet or dry the stones grind down the riders leaving only the strongest of cyclist able to even finish the day. So this year I created my tribute to the hard men and women that make this brutal race one of the most beautiful one day races in the world.

There have been many well known quotes about Paris-Roubaix, I like this one; “Paris-Roubaix is a horrible race to ride but the most beautiful one to win.” – Sean Kelly

But my favorite comes from the great documentary film, Road to Roubaix where Peter Van Petegem was talking about what it takes to win Roubaix and said; “You must love the stones.” Indeed you must.
