Peter Sagan says he won't fear the conditions if Paris-Roubaix is blighted by wet weather on Sunday, adding that it could make the 118th one an extra special one.

Champion in 2018, Sagan has experienced the Roubaix cobbles in wet and windy conditions, though that was part of the cobbled Tour de France stage in 2014.
