Confirmed list of teams for Paris-Roubaix on Sunday, April 8

The full list of riders taking part in the 2018 Paris-Roubaix will be published in the week leading up to the race, but race organisers ASO have already revealed the 25 teams which will have a spot on the start line this year.

Paris-Roubaix is arguably the biggest one day race in the entire cycling calendar and attracts all of the major classics specialists.

All 18 of the WorldTour teams are guaranteed a place in the race, with ASO also giving wildcard places to seven other teams.

For the 2018 edition of Paris-Roubaix those teams are Cofidis, Delko Marseille Provence KTM, Direct Energie, Fortuneo-Samsic, Veranda’s Willems-Crelan, Vital Concept Cycling Club, and WB Aqua Protect Veranclassic.

Greg Van Avermaet is the race’s defending champion, and will be expected to be part of the BMC Racing line-up. He will face tough competition as always, with Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) having stated his intention to target the race, while the likes of Ian Stannard (Team Sky), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), and Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) should also be there challenging for the win.
