This year, race organisers have added an extra two sectors of the hellish pavé that makes the Paris-Roubaix so famous. The total distance raced on cobbles is now 55.7 kilometres, split across 29 sectors, counting down as the race closes in on the famous velodrome in Roubaix. 

Starting in Compiegne the total race distance is a huge 259.9 kilometres but it’s the cobbled stretches that really count and especially the five star sectors such as Mons-en-Pévèle (#11), the Carrefour de l’Arbre (#3) and the dreaded Trouée d’Arenberg (#19) which is where the favourites will all want to be right at the front. 

Last year’s emphatic winner Mathieu Van de Poel (Alpecin - Deceuninck) returns to try and double up but he will be without his principle rival as Wout Van Aert (Team Visma | Lease a Bike) crashed last Wednesday breaking multiple bones. The role of second favourite now falls on the shoulders of the Gent Wevelgem winner Mads Pedersen (Lidl - Trek) who proved that Van de Poel can be beaten.

Read on to see how to catch the action from wherever you live.

This resulted in his 2010’s best-selling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, followed to date by 14 more guides to vertical pain. Covering the British Isles, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain he has been riding and racing up hills and mountains for over 30 years now. He hosts talks, guides rides, has written columns for magazines and in 2020 released his first book of cycling routes, RIDE BRITAIN. Simon splits his time between working as a graphic designer and running his 100 Climbs brand and lives in Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District with his wife and two children.
