The Roubaix Showers - Issue 19.2 Cover Print


The Roubaix showers by Michael Blann; world renowned photographer, famous in the cycling world for Mountains, the culmination of a body of work depicting cycling’s greatest and most iconic climbs.

"To the passing observer, the Roubaix shower block which is located in a shabby municipal building adjacent to the Roubaix Velodrome would probably bring back bad memories of school PE classes and cold showers. To the informed racing cyclist these represent hallowed ground. After all this is where every great cyclist that has fought their way over the cobbled farm tracks of northern France in seek of victory in Paris-Roubaix has found themselves, post race, washing off the mud and grime in this brutalist concrete shower block."
