1984 Paris - Roubaix

82nd edition: Sunday, April 8, 1984

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1985 edition | 1983 edition

265.5 km. 158 starters, 42 classified finishers

The race: Muddy and wet roads. Upon exiting the cobbled Wallers-Arenberg Forest, teammates Alain Bondue and Gregor Braun had a lead of almost a minute and a half. They decided to proceed rather than wait for their chasers. With forty kilometers to go Sean Kelly went after the pair, taking Rudy Rogiers with him. The connection was made but Braun was unable to stay with the other three and then Bondue was badly delayed by a crash. The sprint between Rogiers and Kelly was a formality and Kelly won Paris-Roubaix.
