The Cyclingnews readers have chosen, and it's Mat Hayman's incredible 2016 victory in Paris-Roubaix that you've selected as the best edition out of the last 30 years.

Perhaps it's Cyclingnews' Australian roots that have swayed our readers, or the fact that Hayman was only six weeks out from a fractured radius when he denied Tom Boonen the outright record for most wins in the 'Hell of the North'.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
