Simpson Magazine Paris-Roubaix T-Shirt and Competition


Simspon Magazine have added a Paris Roubaix t-shirt to their collection. Paris Roubaix is only just round the corner and with a British rider is yet to come home with a cobble. Ian Stannard (SKY) is looking to become the first British rider to win and is looking good after his victory in Het Nieuwsblad.

“In 1960 Paris-Roubaix became the first classic to be televised live, Tom Simpson led for most of the race. Realising the cameras would give global coverage to the leader and the team sponsor on the jersey. Acknowledged by many as the ride that established him throughout Europe. The icon on the sleeve commemorates his ingenuity and highlights the importance TV coverage was to play in the future.”

L’Eroica Britannia competition

Simpson Magazine also have two places (worth £70 each) to L’Eroica Britannia, which will take place in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire on 20-22 June.

The Eroica will be the climax of a three-day festival of cycling staged in Bakewell. The ride itself takes place on 22 June, with three different routes to choose from, but all taking in the tunnels and viaducts of the Monsal Trail, a cycling/walking/horse-riding trail built on the former Manchester to London railway line.

They are launching our competition to coincide with the Milan-Sanremo, arguably the greatest of the Spring classics and the longest professional one-day bike race in the professional calendar at 298km. It’s a race that’s been won by all the greats, from Merckx and Coppi to Cavendish and Cancellara. Tom Simpson himself won the race in 1964.

To win your place on the Simpson team for this amazing ride, all you have to do is identify these five legendary climbs in descending order (no pun intended).

Send your answers to info@simpsonmagazine.cc by 23 April to be in with a chance of joining them for what promises to be one of the best bike rides of 2014.
