From the Publisher:

Introduction by Bob Roll.

"The authors have approached the race in a clever and unusual fashion. Rather than following a chronology, the majority of the eleven chapters of Paris-Roubaix: A Journey Through Hell are divided into different aspects of the race. These include: the cobblestones themselves; the impact of the weather; messed-up finishes; unexpected winners; the Roubaix velodrome; and a brilliant chapter devoted to the effects of getting a flat tire. There is a gallery of the most celebrated winners and the whole book is stuffed with marvellous photos taken from the archives of L'Équipe. There appear to have been photographers present at every dramatic crash, or else there are always so many crashes that you just have to stand around and wait." --Pezcyclingnews.com

"Something about this book has grabbed me in a way no other cycling book ever has...This book punched me so hard it knocked a tooth loose. A Journey Through Hell brings the race back to life, capturing the faces of the people who make the race what it is. From the pros themselves to the police to the spectators, this book packs your lunch and drags you and your family out for a day at the races." --Belgium Knee Warmers

"This is a book to die for... The writing is of a stunningly high standard, not just informative but descriptive, emotional, involving and delightful. The same can be said of the incredible number of monochrome and colour photographs of a quality that would not disgrace a copy of Rouleur magazine... I read [the book] completely oblivious to the distractions around me...and kept reading passages out loud to anyone within listening distance." --TheWashingMachinePost.net

"This pictorial history of Paris-Roubaix is the first time I have seen the brutality of the event, and the fragility of the riders that are forced to race it, fully exposed in print. The quality of the photography is phenomenal, right from the sepia memories turn of the last century to the multicoloured, multinational new-millennium action, and the captions and story are written in a quirky, amusing style that encourages you to look at each image again." --Bicycling Magazine South Africa

"The book contains hundreds of images, both in colour and black-and-white, and this is one of the reasons for its superiority over video recordings of the race. With the photograph on the page there is time to study the image and time and time again the background is as interesting as the actual subject... The eleven chapters of the book are cleverly themed to take you through the different facets of the race. When you arrive at chapter eleven you will have taken a much appreciated journey through more than a century of life and racing." --Lightweight News

"VeloPress has released a stunning ode to the history of cycling's greatest one day race in this elegant coffee table book...While the stories of the riders, of the race and of the people who fight for it are compelling, it is the photographs that make this book so stunning. A pictorial history not only of the race but of the sport through the ages graces the pages of this remarkable book. Both monochrome and color image quality are nothing short of perfection and shot selections are absolutely riveting. We see riders in triumph, riders in agony. We see riders coursing through history on safety bikes and on modern carbon fiber machines. We are witness to men trying to conquer the formidable beast that is the Hell of the North, frozen in time through the ages. Paris-Roubaix: A Journey Through Hell is a must for any cycling fan. Its stunning coffee table layout and spectacular photography will earn its place as one of the greatest cycling books of all time." --East Coast Mountain Biking

"One can't help but get inspired to ride some rough stuff after reading Paris-Roubaix." --BikeRadar.com

"If you could make a crosscut through the race, you'd see layers which, mundane on their own, have converged into something fascinating. Paris-Roubaix: A Journey Through Hell is easily the most comprehensive effort to perform that crosscut and allow English-speaking fans a chance to examine those layers...Almost the second you crack the cover, the drama of the race explodes off the page." --PodiumCafe.com

"Nothing will get you pumped and primed for the upcoming race, as well as for a new season of bike riding, like Paris-Roubaix: A Journey Through Hell...[The book] keeps alive the elements of folklore and poetry that are Paris-Roubaix. Paris-Roubaix is a celebration of the most famous of races, as well as of a beautiful sport that's been around long enough to have talented authors gloriously sing its praises and deify its participants....If you need motivation to tackle a sloppy spring, look no further than this book." --Mountain Flyer
