For the first time in over 2 years, we had the pleasure to watch
this epic classic again, only this time in October instead
of April. The predicted rainfall made it even more dramatic,
as all of the 55kms of cobblestones were covered in mud.
After 258kms, three riders battled it out in a sprint on the iconic velodrome of Roubaix, and it was European and Italian Champion Sonny Colbrelli who got the better of young Belgian Florian Vermeersch and Dutch superstar Matthieu Vanderpoel.
We were also privileged to witness history in the making with the first ever Paris-Roubaix for women, and it was British rider Lizzie Deignan who took the win after an incredible solo ride of over 80kms.
