1926 Paris - Roubaix

27th edition: Sunday, April 4, 1926

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1925 edition | 1927 edition

270 km. 147 starters and 86 classified finishers. I'm sorry, I have no time splits after 20th place

An early morning rain made the roads wet and muddy for the race. Henri Pélissier was the main protagonist, constantly attacking until he created the final selection, but a late puncture ruined his chances. From the small remaining group Julien Delbecque, winner of the 1925 Tour of Flanders, and Gustaaf van Slembrouck, second in the 1926 Flanders race, rode clear. Delbecque was able to perform a two-handed crowd salute as he won the sprint.
