Paris-Roubaix postponed again due to COVID-19

Paris-Roubaix will not take place on April 11 as planned due to the COVID-19 situation, Le Parisien newspaper reported on its website on Wednesday.

The 2020 edition of the ‘Queen of the Classics’ race was also postponed once before being cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Organisers declined to comment about this year’s race.

Paris-Roubaix is the third ‘Monument’ classic of the season after Milan-Sanremo, which has already taken place, the Tour of Flanders, and before Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Il Lombardia.

The Tour of Flanders is due to take place on Sunday, April 3 as planned.

Earlier this year the UCI decided to extend the season by two weeks until Oct. 31. It leaves the Oct. 24 and Oct 31 slots open for Paris-Roubaix, which is also due to hold its first women’s edition.
