SD Worx-Protime hoping for 'dose of luck' at Paris-Roubaix Femmes

It’s a wonder, really, that for all SD Worx-Protime’s dominance in recent years, the team has never managed to master Paris-Roubaix Femmes. 

The first three editions of the race all ran away from the Dutch super-squad. In 2021, Lidl-Trek’s Lizzie Deignan shocked the field with a long-range solo. The following year, Elisa Longo Borghini did similar, before the breakaway had its day in 2023.
