Pros upload their rides to Strava after fastest ever Paris-Roubaix

Big race, big numbers

The 2017 Paris-Roubaix was the fastest ever in the race's 115 editions, with race winner Greg Van Avermaet recording an average speed of 45.2kph - just 0.1kph faster than the previous record set by Peter Post in 1964.

With that in mind it's no surprise that there were quite a few impressive stats on show when the pros got back to their team buses to upload their rides to Strava.
