Paris Roubaix 2021: profile, route, participants and favorites

After a year of absence due to the pandemic, ‘The Hell of the North’ will return this October 3 in style with an absolutely stellar participation poster. And it is that apart from being a race in which historically there have been surprises, to the appointment of this next Sunday we must add a list of candidates for victory that could perfectly reach twenty runners. In total, it will be 903 days since Gilbert raised his arms at the Roubaix Velodrome in 2019.. until you know who will be the winner of 2021.

The profile

Participants and favorites

In that list, the names of Wout van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel stand out above the rest, authentic specialists in pave, from cyclo-cross, who are eager to achieve their first triumph in the ‘classic of classics’. The main threat for the Belgian and the Dutchman will be the Deceuninck-QuickStep bloc, which presents a very powerful formation with Lampaert, Štybar, Asgreen and Sénéchal at the helm. Nor can we forget the last two champions, Sagan (2018) and Gilbert (2019), although despite their unquestionable conditions for this race they appear a step below in terms of favoritism. In a second step, runners such as Degenkolb, Van Avermaet, Naesen, Boasson Hagen, Terpstra, Vanmarcke, Kragh Andersen, Kristoff, Trentin, Van Baarle, Moscon, Stuyven and Pedersen appear. On the part of the Spanish, Iván García Cortina will start as one of the best assets.
