What's Cool In Road Cycling

Dunkerque-Roubaix with Geraint Thomas Results

The inaugural 165km Dunkerque-Roubaix Spring Classic took place on Sunday. The event included the last 40km of the Paris-Roubaix, with the race section finishing at the end of the notorious Carrefour de l’Abre. Headlining new ambassador Geraint Thomas alongside Stephen Roche and 2004 Paris-Roubaix winner Magnus Backstedt the event was authentic in every sense, closing at the Roubaix velodrome and participants even enjoying the iconic showers.
