Paris-Roubaix 2018: Sagan wins

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) won the 2018 Paris-Roubaix by outsprinting Silvain Dillier (AG2R La Mondiale), who had managed to cling on from the day's original break. Niki Terpstra (Quick-Step Floors) rolled in alone to complete the podium.

Sagan made the winning move from an astonishing 53km out, dropping a group containing most of the day's favourites. He caught the remnants of the day's break and from that group only Dillier could hang on.

Paris-Roubaix 2018 preview

The 2018 Paris-Roubaix route will go largely unchanged from 2017. The course will have 29 secteurs of cobblestones covering 52km, including the new section of Saint-Hilaire, over the course of the 257km race.

The race will also see a return of the Saint-Python secteur for the first time since 2016, although the riders will be hitting the cobbles from the opposite direction as raced previously.

As usual, attention will centre around the three toughest sections of pave - Tranchée d’Arenberg, Mons-en-Pévèle and the Carrefour de l’Arbre - which often prove pivotal to the outcome of the race. 

Although the Arenberg Trench is tackled at almost 100km from the finishing line, it often causes many problems for the peloton splintering the bunch into smaller groups.

Carrefour de l'Arbre is the last major test for any rider in with a chance for victory. This 2.1km section has been used as a springboard for many attacks in the past thanks to its tough cobbles and close proximity to the finish.
