The hell up North in France ends hopes of spring Roubaix

The rising tide of Covid wave #3 across mainland Europe looks to have ensured that Paris-Roubaix will not happen in its traditional April slot this year.

The race didn’t happen at all in 2020.

This will be a real blow as it was going to be a double header of female and male racing to the famous velodrome.

However cases of a Paris variant near the start and high infection rates in Lille which is close to the finish look to be key in putting paid to that.

Nothing has been officially confirmed yet but there is a chance of an October date.
