1962 Paris - Roubaix

60th edition: Sunday, April 9, 1962

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1963 edition | 1961 edition

258 km. 76 classified finishers.

With nineteen kilometers remaining there were five riders away: Raymond Poulidor, Rik van Looy, Emile Daems, Frans Schoubben and Jozef Planckaert. They worked together, extending their lead until Poulidor attacked as they reached the outskirts of Roubaix. Van Looy's counter-acceleration brought him clear. So good was van Looy's form that year that he easily powered his 54 x 14 gear to his second consecutive win.
