After two races in a row won by lone riders, it is almost time to see what will happen in the third edition of Paris-Roubaix Femmes. It has been a spring dominated by SD Worx, who have won every single cobbled Classic, but Roubaix has been a race won only by Trek-Segafredo to date.

Unlike the men's race, Paris-Roubaix Femmes starts in Denain, closer to the finish in Roubaix, but this year's race has been extended to 145.4km. However, there is still no space for possibly the toughest cobbled sector, the Trouée d'Arenberg, but the race does have 29.2km of pavé spread across 17 sectors.
