Paris-Roubaix, the Hell of the North, the Queen of the Classics, is back this weekend for the women’s race on Saturday 8th April and the men’s race on Sunday 9th April.
The women will set off from Denain on Saturday and take in 145.4km with 17 secteurs of cobbles totalling 29.2km. The men’s race meanwhile will begin in Compiègne just outside Paris on Sunday and make its way through eastern France taking in 256.6km, including 29 cobbled secteurs amassing a hefty 54.5km of pavé.
Defending champions Elisa Longo Borghini and Dylan van Baarle will be there to fend off the peloton, although both are recovering from illnesses, so this year’s races are wide open.
Unless you’re going to the race – which we can also help you with – you’ll want to be firmly planted in front of your TV, computer, laptop, tablet, phone or whatever device you watch cycling on, for the whole weekend. With that in mind, here’s how to watch it all.
