The Race: Wind, snow and rain. At the Carrefour de l'Arbre sector of cobbles, with about 15 kilometers remaining, Marc Madiot launched himself from a small group of survivors. His attack was irresistible. To make the victory sweeter, his teammate Bruno Wojtinek, who had been protecting him, was able to extricate himself as well, giving Cyrille Guimard's Renault-Elf team a 1-2 at Paris-Roubaix.
