Retro Gallery: Looking through the lens at Paris-Roubaix

As we look forward to this Sunday's edition of Paris-Roubaix with Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Leopard) the outright favourite to claim a third title, Cyclingnews has compiled this retrospective gallery, looking back at the most famous and popular one day race on the cycling calender.

The course itself has changed throughout the years, with the famed Trouée d'Arenberg now run in the opposite direction while it was left out altogether in 2005. But from Coppi to Cancellara, Boonen to Bobet and Ballerini, Paris-Roubaix remains the most prestigious one-day race on the planet.
