The Transcontinental 2015 - Follow the HSP media wall for #TCR 2015




Rapha’s homage to Paris-Roubaix, the Hell of the North, takes place on 13th April. It’s the fifth anniversary of the event and entry is free. The sad news is, entry has already been allocated. By the time i got in to write this entry had filled up which is a shame but it looks like a great event so i’m not really surprised! Participants receive a woven patch, something you cannot buy and has to be earned. We’ve collected a few Rapha patches at Headset Press but long for more. There’s always lots of suffering involved mind.


A limited edition cap will be available to buy from the first week of April. There’s plenty more information on Hell of the North V on the Rapha site and details of previous instalments of the event.
