Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) admitted that she wasn't going to compete at the first edition of the women's Paris-Roubaix, originally scheduled for this Sunday, because it conflicted with her upcoming goals at the Ardennes Classic. However, Vos told Cyclingnews that she may reconsider and participate in the famed cobbled classic now that it has been postponed until October 2.

"Paris-Roubaix wan’t on my plan because I put my focus on Tour of Flanders, and the combination of Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège," Vos told Cyclingnews.
