Paris-Roubaix 2021 is finally very nearly here. 

Usually we would be looking towards the Italian Classics and Paris-Tours as the season comes to a close after the World Championships, but this year the Worlds in Flanders leads into the 'Hell of the North' at Paris-Roubaix after over two years of waiting.

The race had to be postponed three times due to the Covid-19 pandemic with it not taking place at all in 2020. This means that the last race winner was Philippe Gilbert in 2019 when he was still riding for Quick-Step.

In 2021, the race was all set to take place in it's usual slot, but the virus started to spike in the Lille and Roubaix area meaning that it ad to be pushed back again. And here we are, Sunday, October 3 is the day the peloton finally ride through hell.

This year also marks the first ever women’s Paris-Roubaix, a historic moment for cycling, and another thrilling addition to the WorldTour calendar.

Unsurprisingly, much like in the women's event, there is an all-star cast set to race on the brutal cobbles with previous winners such as Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Greg Van Avermaet (Ag2r-Citroën), Niki Terpstra (TotalEnergies) and the Lotto-Soudal duo of Gilbert and John Degenkolb all set to race.

But the new young-guns of Classics racing, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) are all set to race too with Van der Poel making his debut at the race.

Some other stand-out names are Zdeněk Štybar (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe), Dylan van Baarle (Ineos Grenadiers), Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) and many more besides.
