Famous for its rough terrain and cobblestones Paris Roubaix is considered one of the Monuments of the European cycling calendar, and contributes points towards the UCI World Ranking.
The Paris-Roubaix begins at 9:30pm AEST on Sunday 8 April on SBS ONE, with simultaneous live streaming online. David Basheer will host with guest analyst Henk Vogels and commentary from Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen.
Paris-Roubaix, L'enfer du Nord has come to a close, signalling the end

Tom Boonen believes that he will go down as the best rider in the history of the cobbled classics after storming to a record-equalling triumph at Sunday's Paris-Roubaix.Full Story
