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.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
