Originally announced as an extension of Leader 1, Leader 1: Hell of the North has since transformed into a standalone game, albeit one in which the components can be used in the original game from whence this one came.
Game play is similar to that in the original game: "Each of the teams includes different types of cyclists. Every cyclist enjoys the benefits of a free base movement which varies according to his specialty and according to the hexagon at the beginning of his movement. After this kind of movement every racer can add a paying movement. Therefore, the race is based on the riders' energy management: initially the riders are all inside the peloton, where it is easier to save energy, but then they will have to find the proper moment to break away to open the definitive gap ahead of the peloton."
"Hell of the North" is a slang term for a one-day bicycle race originally from Paris to Roubaix that includes many sections of cobbled roads, sections that often lead to damaged bikes, falls and unexpected race results. A mix of new terrain, including cobblestoned sections, is included in the game with forty new tracks on twenty hexagonal tiles. New miniatures are included that match the size of those in the original game, and the game includes "new rider characteristics", according to Ghenos' Alfredo Genovese, to go with the miniatures. While game play is similar to that of the original game, the rules have been revised and updated.
These rules are based on the Leader 1 and Hell of the North rules set. The advanced rules seek to add the perfect blend of Leader 2 Rules and Peloton Expansion 3 Rules along with some original ideas. Included are more types of cyclists, more special abilities, a stronger peloton and time trial rules (that actually make time trials meaningful). Player aids are included. Enjoy!
Ho provato a creare un metodo di calcolo dei secondi di distacco in una corsa a tappe. Ho utilizzato il Tour del France del 2014 di Gubban (2014-07-02), che e' meraviglioso!
Dai calcoli si puo' fare il tour del france, calcolando il distacco casella per casella.
Ci sono anche le istruzioni per calcolare i secondi per ogni corsa a tappe!

dradice munkája alapján (https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/101588/player-aids) elkészítettem a magyar 1 oldalas segédletet.

The race Gent - Wevelgem 2015 designed on Vassal. The hexagon tiles from the Hell of the North edition, as well as either the Leader 1 or Giro d'Italia editions, are needed to create the race. Have fun!
Tirreno-Adriatico is a 7 stage race. Stages are designed with Hell of the North and Giro d'Italia tiles.
Each stage has been kept to under 60 mileposts (except stage 4), while maintaining a reasonably accurate representation of the major features of each stage. Enjoy.
Here are time trial rules designed to be used with Hell of the North or Leader 2 rules. These rules are to create more meaningful time trial simulations.
These recommendations have been play tested for up to 30 km time trials. Longer time trials would require some adjustments to scale of the course and to the time measurements. Enjoy.
The race Milano - Sanremo 2015 designed on Vassal. The hexagon tiles from the Hell of the North edition, as well as either the Leader 1 or Giro d'Italia editions, are needed to create the race. Have fun!
