A rite of passage on the cobblestones

Their time has come.
The world's top female cyclists have long watched their male counterparts do battle and get rattled on the cobbled sectors of Paris–Roubaix with a mix of jealousy and awe. Now, their first foray into the Hell of the North is approaching fast. Next year, the ladies will also know how it feels to go head to head on such hellish terrain, which only makes the entrance to Roubaix Velodrome that much sweeter.
Already a major partner in men's racing, the Hauts-de-France region is, with its newest collaboration, showing how strongly committed it is to cycling, the cobbles and to the "Reine des Classiques".
FDJ, who have just renewed their partnership with the "La Course By Le Tour de France avec FDJ", reinforce their presence in women's cycling by becoming the official partner of the new race. This partnership has been created as a part of the "Sport pour elles" program, launched by FDJ in 2016. FDJ-Nouvelle-Aquitaine-Futuroscope cycling team of which it is the major partner will be at the start of this first Paris-Roubaix women.
Amaury Sport Organisation is glad to be able to count on all of the partners of the men's event for their growing support for the first edition of Paris-Roubaix Women.
