Uno-X gets Paris-Roubaix wildcard

ASO has handed out its wildcards for the next edition of Paris-Roubaix for men and women. 25 teams will start in the men’s race, while 24 teams will participate in the second edition of Paris-Roubaix for women.

In addition to the fourteen Women’s WorldTeams and the three best continental teams (Ceratizit-WNT, Parkhotel Valkenburg and Valcar-Travel & Service) from the past cycling season, the organization has also handed out seven wildcards. Ark√©a Pro Cycling Team, Cofidis Women Team, Le Col Wahoo, NXTG by Experza, Plantur Pura, Stade Rochelais Charente-Maritime and St Michel-Auber 93 have been invited.

For the men, we can split the peloton into the 18 WorldTour teams, the three best ProTeams (Alpecin-Fenix, Arkea-Samsic and TotalEnergies) from 2021 and four teams invited by ASO. These are B&B Hotels-KTM, Bingoal Pauwels Sauces-WB, Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise and Uno-X.

On April 16 the women will compete for victory in Paris-Roubaix, while a day later it will be the men’s turn.

Last year, Paris-Roubaix was held in autumn as Lizzie Deignan won the very first Paris-Roubaix for women and Sonny Colbrelli was the best in the men’s race.
