Picking photos from Paris-Roubaix is never easy, but with the terrible news of the death of Michael Goolaerts from a cardiac arrest after falling on the second set of cobbles, there will be no photos of the medical team working on Michael or of any crashes.

Terpstra was strong, but should he have chased earlier?

Sagan was on song, but what about Silvan Dillier – Having suffered a broken finger racing the Strade Bianche on March 3, Silvan Dillier had had to give up racing most of the cobbled classics that had initially been his main goals for the spring. He did return to competition on March 30th by winning the Route Adélie. He only ended up participating in Paris-Roubaix due to the fact that Rudy Barbier injured himself in a cash at the Tour of Flanders last weekend and was unable to take the start On Sunday.
