Saturday, April 16, 2022, will be the Paris-Roubaix Femmes, while Sunday, April 17, 2022, will be the Paris-Roubaix for the men.
Only six months have passed since the last race, but the peloton is once again ready to take on the cobblestones at the recognisable landmark.
Where to Watch Paris-Roubaix 2022
When the 2021 contest was postponed from April to October because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 race was just moved back by a week so as to not conflict with the French national elections.
The Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix are both owned by the Association Cycliste Internationale (ASO), and for the past few months, ASO and local entities have been hard at work grooming roads and pavé along the route to make for an exciting event without putting the riders in harm’s way.
No horses that have previously won the “Hell of the North” will do it again. Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) continues to be under medical monitoring following the implantation of a subcutaneous defibrillator, and Lizzy Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) is out on maternity leave (ICD).

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 male competitors will cover 257 kilometres and 30 pavé sectors during Sunday’s race. You can count on Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) to be out front, but you can bet that Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl’s “Wolfpack” will have Kasper Asgreen pegged as a favourite.
Dylan van Baarle, Ben Turner, Magnus Sheffield, and the newly crowned Amstel Gold champion Micha Kwiatkowski will all be competing for Ineos-Grenadiers, while Trek-Segafredo will be placing their hopes on the back of Mads Pedersen, a previous world champion.
The likes of Milan-San Remo champion Matej Mohori (Bahrain-Victorious), and Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux’s Alexander Kristoff must be dealt with as well (Stefan Küng, Groupama-FDJ; Mohori, Bahrain-Victorious).
Wout van Aert has recovered from COVID-19 and is now eligible to compete, thus he will be at the start with his Jumbo-Visma teammates.
