On Saturday, April 16, 2022, the Paris-Roubaix Femmes will take place, while on Sunday, April 17, 2022, the Paris-Roubaix will be contested by the men.
After only six months, the peloton will once again take to the cobblestones in front of the famous landmark.
With the 2021 race postponed from April to October because to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 event was simply moved back by a week to accommodate the French national elections.
The Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix are both owned by the Association Cycliste Internationale (ASO), and over the previous few months, ASO and municipal entities have been busy grooming roads and pavé along the route to make for an interesting race without putting the riders in harm’s way.
No horses that have previously won the “Hell of the North” will do it again. Both Lizzy Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) and Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) are now off from work due to parental leave or medical observation, respectively (ICD).
You can therefore Anticipate New or Different Repeat Winners at this Renowned Paved Landmark.
On Saturday, the women’s race will cover 124.7 kilometres and feature 17 sections of cobblestones, making it a wide-open contest for riders like Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx), world champion Elisa Balsamo and teammate Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek Segafredo), Marianne Vos (Jumbo Visma), Emma Norsgaard (Movistar Team), and Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM).
The men’s race, which takes place on Sunday, will cover 257 kilometres and feature 30 pavé sections. If history is any indication, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) will be in the lead, while Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl’s “Wolfpack” will be betting on Kasper Asgreen.
Trek-Segafredo will put their faith in former world champion Mads Pedersen, while Ineos-Grenadiers will send Dylan van Baarle, Ben Turner, Magnus Sheffield, and the recently crowned Amstel Gold champion Micha Kwiatkowski.
They must also deal with threats from riders like Milan-San Remo champion Matej Mohori (Bahrain-Victorious) and Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux’ Alexander Kristoff.
After just recovering from COVID-19, Wout van Aert has been given the green light to race and will be joining his Jumbo-Visma colleagues at the start.
