April 1 st 2021 - 16:36
The organisers of Paris-Roubaix and Paris-Roubaix Femmes have recognised the Préfecture des Hauts de France’s decision to request the postponement of the events that had been scheduled to take place on the 11th April.
Thanks to effective and rapid collaboration with the Union Cycliste Internationale and the local authorities concerned, the new dates fixed are the 2nd October for Paris-Roubaix Women and the 3rd October for Paris-Roubaix.
Christian Prudhomme: “An eminently popular Classic, targeted by the best riders in the World, followed by millions of fans and benefitting from a television broadcast in 190 countries, Paris-Roubaix is a source of pride for the whole Hauts de France region that welcomes it with fervour each year. It’s part of the region. It’s part of its history. It’s why we are happy to announce that the Queen of the Classics will be happening in 2021 and that the women’s edition will be enjoyed for the first time by competitors and fans alike.”
