Wout van Aert, Mathieu van der Poel, or someone else? Six favourites for the men's Paris-Roubaix

The dust is settling on a spectacular edition of the men's Tour of Flanders, but it is already time to look ahead to the 120th edition of Paris-Roubaix on Sunday.

The race will be without the conquerer of the Flemish bergs, Tadej Pogačar, but the lineup is no less as promising. The remaining two of the big three, Wout van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel, will both be in Compiègne on Sunday, as will other favourites like Mads Pedersen, Stefan Küng, and last year's winner Dylan van Baarle.
