Even in dry conditions, Paris-Roubaix delivers—strategy, tactics, smart racing, hard roads and yes—just a little bit of luck.
Thanks again to Eurosport Cycling for making this happen, and don’t hesitate to click the “no, please help!” link in the upper right of the video player especially if you live in France or outside of Europe as you are likely to have issues with the video if you are in these places.

TLDW – thanks for the perfect play by play as always!
Brilliant! On initial viewing, I had failed to see how effective Deceuninck–Quick-Step tactics where. Partially, during those last KMs. Thank you for putting together this spring classic series again. I do miss the old “Paris Roubaix” choir from Sunday in Hell…
“Hey Wout – are we doing the cyclocross?”
“Just keep pedalling Peter.”
Brilliant. Just brilliant. Thank you.
Mathieu van der Poel didn’t want to ride Paris-Roubaix this year. He wanted to focus on Brabantse Pijl (which went quite well) and on Amstel Gold Race. So that’s why his team wasn’t invited. For the rest great work again on analyzing the race.
One small thing. Mathieu van der Poel didn’t want to ride Paris-Roubaix. He preferred to prepare for Brabantse Pijl (which went quite well) and Amstel Gold Race. So that’s why Corendon-Circus wasn’t invited.
Great stuff. Love the cosmocomments. Witty and funny.
