The Cycling News Podcast

Paris-Roubaix preview

April 12, 2019

The cobbled Classics are almost at their end with Paris-Roubaix set to close the curtain on the pave for this season. The Hell of the North is one of the most unpredictable races on the calendar, but this week the Cyclingnews team will try to have a go at predicting what will happen.

 The team discuss the wide variety of contenders, while also daring to pick who we think will make the podium and we take a look at some of the tech on show for this weekend’s race.

 We also hear from a few of the contenders themselves after they completed their recons of the course, including Wout van Aert, Philippe Gilbert, Alexander Kristoff and former winner Philippe Gilbert.
