For the second year in a row at Paris-Roubaix Femmes, the solo winner in the Velodrome André Pétrieux was a Trek-Segafredo rider, and for the second year in a row the winner hailed the race as another step forward for women's cycling.

Last time out it was Lizzie Deignan who triumphed, later praising her team for "pushing boundaries" as they matched prize money between their male and female squads. On Saturday, Elisa Longo Borghini noted that the press attention for the second edition of the race was another step forward.
