ASO have announced the teams and route for the inaugural edition of Women's Paris Roubaix, which will take place on the same day as the men's race, October 25.

The women will roll out well ahead of the men, starting at 9:10 in Denain, south of Roubaix, and take in 116 kilometres before finishing on the famous Roubaix Velodrome. Seventeen sectors of cobbled roads will fill out the route, with the pavé beginning after just 20km of racing.
