RadioShack Leopard riders may have woken up with sore heads on Monday morning, but all riders of Paris-Roubaix, whether they finished in the top-10 or didn't finish at all, will be experiencing the same pain of the morning after the 'Hell of the North.'

While the dirt and sweat may be long gone....

...their bodies will still be reminding them of the hell they put it through. Even if their skin never scraped the cobbles their bodies still suffer the effects of the 52.5km of jarring pave.

For race winner Fabian Cancellara there is only one part of his body that is not in pain.
