Cyclist Magazine Podcast Episode 27 – Paris-Roubaix Bonus

8 Apr 2021

Yes, we know that the men's and inaugural women's Paris-Roubaix have both been postponed until October but that doesn't mean we cannot still do some reminiscing about the greatest race in the cycling calendar right now.

After all, with the race not taking place on 11th April as originally scheduled, what else do you expect us to do to fill the void?

With that in mind, we called upon friends of the Cyclist Magazine Podcast, including Greg LeMond, Sean Kelly, Magnus Backstedt and more, to tell us their most memorable moments from the Hell of the North in a special Paris-Roubaix Bonus Episode.

Learn how LeMond guided Hinault to victory, why five crashes reduced Kelly to tears and what it's really like to race a wet Roubaix with Rob Hayles.

In homage to the best race in the cycling calendar, Cyclist and komoot want you to plan and ride your own Roubaix-inspired route this weekend. Cobbles, gravel, byways, particularly potholed main roads, the lot.

Here's an example komoot shared with us that hits the cobbles of Halifax, gnarly!

Once you’ve got your route and ridden, be sure to tag Cyclist Magazine on komoot so we can see the very best rides.
