Paris-Roubaix, one of cycling's oldest races

A great find for cycling fans!
Le Paris-Roubaix 1933 painted cut-out wood sign.
The 70" length makes the cyclist come to life !
Started in 1896, the race is one of cycling's oldest and is famous for its rough, cobblestone terrain.
The winner is given a cobblestone (sett) as part of his prize!
Also known as The Easter Race, it is always on a Sunday, in early April.
This year, the race will be April 11, 2010.
