The biggest prize to be gained at Paris-Roubaix on Sunday will be the famous cobblestone trophy, but if you're a rider who doesn't manage that, then at least there's the secondary prizes of the many prestigious Strava KOMs along the course.

Quick-Step Floors' Niki Terpstra was the former king of the KOMs having taken on his way to victory in 2014. However, the Dutchman's dominance has been challenged in the last couple of years as more pros start to upload their rides.

There are also still a handful of amateurs that have managed to cling to their KOMs, while there is a tantalising opportunity for someone to take the QOM on the Viesly to Briastre sector, a new addition to the race course that has never been ridden by a woman on Strava.

Also up for grabs is the KOM of the Roubaix velodrome, with the tired sprints at the end of a 260km not lending themselves to KOM-chasing, with an amateur currently holding the best mark by five seconds.
