The 2020 edition of Paris-Roubaix is going to be raced on Sunday, October 25 after it was postponed due to the global pandemic.

There will be 25 teams taking part, with six wildcard teams included in that. The wildcard teams are Nippo Delko Provence, Total Direct Energie, Team Arkéa-Samsic, B&B Hotels - Vital Concept p/b KTM, Alpecin - Fenix and Circus - Wanty-Gobert.

There is a lot of excitement with this race as it will see the debut of Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin - Fenix), who will no doubt be one of the main favourites.

Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) will be his main challenge in the first showdown between the two cyclo-cross stars since Milan-San Remo.

Sep Vanmarke (EF Pro Cycling) and Oliver Naesen (AG2R - La Mondiale), Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) and Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) are just some of the names down to take to the start line in Compiègne.

The biggest and most notable absence is 2018 winner, Peter Sagan (Bora - Hansgrohe), who is keeping his word and riding the Giro d'Italia, which along with La Vuelta a España, overlaps the race.

This year also sees the first ever women's Paris-Roubaix. This has been pushed for over many years, especially as the female peloton already has the Tour of Flanders, amongst other classics, in the calendar.

Ellen Van Dyck (Trek-Segafredo) and Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans) are early favourites, this may change as the start list is put out.

You would imagine that Marianne Vos' CCC-Liv team will be there in full force, with the Dutch woman leading the charge to the velodrome. They have yet to announce who is dow to ride for them though.

Annemiek van Vleuten will always be an interesting rider to watch as well as the European champion looks to get back to winning ways.
