Such a long wait
September 14 th 2021 - 11:52

After a one-and-a-half-year delay caused by the health crisis which has shaken up sporting schedules, starter’s orders on the 118th edition will eventually be given in Compiègne on 3rd October at 11.00, for a 257,7-kilometre route including 55 kilometres of cobbles spread over 30 sections (as opposed to 54.5 km and 29 sections in 2019). The cobble specialists will notably have to tackle the ascent of the sloped section at the Hameau du Buat.
2021 will also be the year that witnesses the first edition of Paris Roubaix Femmes, on 2nd October. The women’s pack will start from the Northern French town of Denain to cover a 116.4-km route with 17 cobbled sectors and the same last 85 kilometres as the men’s race, including the prestigious finish at the vélodrome de Roubaix cycling stadium.

Do the women get better showers, though?
