1927 Paris - Roubaix

28th edition: Sunday, April 17, 1927

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1926 edition | 1928 edition

270 km. 123 starters and 97 classified finishers. I'm sorry, I have no time splits after 21st place

Georges Ronsse created a selection by riding through the feed station Arras without stopping for food and water, forcing the others to chase. Twenty riders caught the fleeing Belgian and upon arriving in Roubaix the lead group was down to 16. At first it as thought Joseph Curtel had won the sprint. In fact the band played "La Marseillaise" in celebration of a French winner. Shortly thereafter the judges announced Belgian racer Ronsse had won the close sprint, which enraged the crowd and caused fights.

Ronnse win, just barely

1927 was a close call.
