How to Watch Paris Roubaix 2022 in USA
Saturday, April 16, 2022, will be the Paris-Roubaix Femmes, while Sunday, April 17, 2022, will be the Paris-Roubaix for the men.
While only six months have passed since the last event, the peloton is once again preparing to race at the historic landmark.
As the 2021 race was pushed back from April to October because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 race was pushed back by only one week to accommodate the French national elections.
The Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix are both owned by the Association Cycliste Internationale (ASO), and over the previous few months, ASO and municipal entities have been hard grooming roads and pavé along the route to make it both entertaining and safe for the riders.
No horse will win the “Hell of the North” again after competing in it previously. Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) is currently being monitored in the hospital after having a subcutaneous defibrillator implanted while Lizzy Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) is out on maternity leave (ICD).
That being said, this renowned brick structure will likely see new or different repeat winners in the near future.
Women’s racers like Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx), world champion Elisa Balsamo and partner Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek Segafredo), Marianne Vos (Jumbo Visma), Emma Norsgaard (Movistar Team), and Lorena Wiebes (Wiggle-Honda) had a lot of room to manoeuvre in Saturday’s 124.7-kilometer, 17-sector cobbled (Team DSM).
The Men’s Race, which takes Place on Sunday, will Cover 257 Kilometres and Feature 30 Pavé Sections.
Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) will likely lead the race, but the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl “Wolfpack” has already picked Kasper Asgreen as their man to win.
Teams like Ineos-Grenadiers and Trek-Segafredo are betting on world champion Mads Pedersen and riders like Dylan van Baarle, Ben Turner, Magnus Sheffield, and the recently crowned Amstel Gold winner Micha Kwiatkowski.
They will also have to deal with threats like Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ), Milan-San Remo champion Matej Mohori (Bahrain-Victorious), and Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux).
Wout van Aert has recovered from the COVID-19 virus and will be starting the race alongside his Jumbo-Visma colleagues.
