Tom Pidcock (Wiggins Le Col) has become the first ever British winner of Paris-Roubaix U23 in the 2019 edition of the race.
The Brit was out front with Swiss rider Jonas Jacobs before he attacked with less than 20km remaining.
Jacobs eventually finished second, with Belgian rider Jens Reynders (Wallonie-Bruxelles Development Team) third.
Pidcock and Jacobs had been part of a group of nine riders at the front of the race, before the pair attacked with 25km to go.
In the 2018 edition of the race, Pidcock finished 27th, more than seven minutes adrift of the Belgian winner Stan Dewulf.
The Team Wiggins Le Col rider did win the junior edition of Paris-Roubaix in 2017, a race Geraint Thomas (Ineos) won in 2004.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.
Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).
I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
