1938 Paris - Roubaix

39th edition: Sunday, April 17, 1938

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1939 edition | 1937 edition

255 km. 171 starters and 59 classified finishers

Very cold, with a strong north wind. Seventeen kilometers from Roubaix the lead group was down to fifteen riders. Louis Hardiquest attacked with 21-year old Lucien Storme on his wheel. Nine kilometers later Storme punctured. Storme was back on the road in a flash and in no time had caught Hardiquest. Storme led out the sprint from a long way back and easily beat the more highly regarded Hardiquest.
