The 118th edition of Paris-Roubaix will take place on Sunday April 12th, 2020. The Monument, held in northern France, signals the culmination of the cobbled classics season, and is possibly the most prestigious one-day race on the calendar.
Known as the Hell of the North or Queen of the Classics, the race has long been established as among the most brutal of the year, a test for specialist riders and equipment alike.
The route, one of the longest of the year at over 250km, runs from south to north from Compiègne, a town 80km north of Paris, over the most brutal roads the peloton will experience all year. After almost 30 cobbled sectors, the surviving riders make it to the smooth velodrome in Roubaix.
The 2019 edition of the race saw Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-QuickStep) triumph after making an elite move in the final 50 kilometres, later easily outsprinting Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin) in Roubaix.
