The under-23 Paris-Roubaix will continue next year despite fears of cancellation and rising police fees. The race will receive the support from the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), organisers of the professional version and the Tour de France.

"The good relationship between the Amaury Sport Organisation and Velo Club Roubaix has helped preserve the amateur Paris-Roubaix for 2011," read a VC Roubaix statement. "The Amaury Sport Organisation, already co-organiser of the event, decided to provide the additional support needed to hold one of the most important appointments on the calendar for amateurs."
