Since 1896, the "Queen of the classics" or "Hell of the North" is a one-day road race in northern France near the Belgian frontier. Famous for incredibly rough terrain including seventeen sections of pavé or cobblestones and lots of dust or mud, it is one of the 'monuments' of the European race calendar, and contributes points towards the UCI World Ranking.
Known as the Race of the Two Seas. This three day event crosses the snowy mountains of Italy.
