The dust has settled on the pavé of northern France, finally. The joints of the 317 riders who competed in Paris-Roubaix and Paris-Roubaix Femmes avec Zwift across the weekend will surely still be aching from the juddering experience of the cobbles, and Alison Jackson probably still has not come down from the ceiling following the shock of her win, so there is still time to take a look back at the Hell of the North.

Over two days of dynamic racing, Jackson triumphed in the velodrome from the break on Saturday's race, before Mathieu van der Poel took advantage of Wout van Aert's misfortune to solo to victory in the men's event on Sunday. As always, the brutal roads of northern France led to some outstanding photography.
