The Hell of the North. Arguably the biggest and most exciting one-day race of the year. The cobbles, the dust, the crashes, the legendary Roubaix velodrome — for the invested bike fan, Paris-Roubaix stands apart from all others. Rather, it kicks off in Compiegne some 80km north-north-east of Paris and has done since This year the course spans km, winding its way north towards the Belgian border.
Paris-Roubaix was inaugurated in , making it one of the oldest bike races in the world. Born of a familiar story involving entrepreneurial types, newspapers, and money-making schemes, in time the race has come to adopt monikers like the 'Queen of the Classics' and 'Hell of the North', and remains one of the most prestigious victories to take in pro bike racing. Niki Terpstra Quick-Step Floors rolled in alone to complete the podium. Sagan made the winning move from an astonishing 53km out, dropping a group containing most of the day's favourites. He caught the remnants of the day's break and from that group only Dillier could hang on. The Paris-Roubaix route will go largely unchanged from and Although the Arenberg Trench is tackled at almost km from the finishing line, it often causes many problems for the peloton splintering the bunch into smaller groups however it is now m shorter than previous years thanks to a recent remeasuring.
Why was Paris-Roubaix live on TV from start to finish? Television advertising revenue is falling because people can skip over the ad breaks when they watch ordinary shows says Bilalian. In an era of fragmenting audiences with ever more channels on TV and other means to watch content, a long live production is a way to gain some extra viewers. Paris-Roubaix was a trial run. Some stages have been shown in their entirety in recent years but not all.

Paris-Roubaix 2019: Route, start list and all you need to know
Please refresh the page and retry. D eceuninck-Quick Step once again proved why they are the best team in the world when it comes to the one-day races with a perfectly executed victory at Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. When it come to strength in numbers, Patrick Lefevere's squad has it by the shedload. In the end, though, it was Gilbert who took the honours with a superb ride that saw the year-old enter the history books alongside Louison Bobet, Germain Derycke, Alfred De Bruyne, Sean Kelly and Hennie Kuiper who have each won four different monuments. Difficult, but not beyond the realms of possibility.
One of the most talented riders in the peloton, the year-old wrote his first blog for the team, while in Argentina, where he races San Luis. Hello, everyone! As many fans have asked me more about my first years in cycling and how I came into this sport, I decided to write this blog for the Etixx — Quick-Step website in which I will answer to these questions. My father was an amateur rider, who loved and still loves the sport very much. When I was a kid, I went together with him to some races and I became in love with cycling. Seeing this, my father bought me my first bike, which I began to ride all day long, but it wasn't until I turned 15 that I began thinking about becoming a cyclist. Being born in La Ceja — a small town in Antioquia — the logical step for me would have been to become a climber and go for stage races, but I have been always fascinated by the sprinters, the speed they could produce and the fact that to win a sprint you don't need just sheer power, but also to be intelligent and look for the best tactic in those final kilometers.
