94th Paris - Roubaix (World Cup)
Sunday, April 14, 1996

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1995 edition | 1997 edition

263.5 km. 184 starters, 56 classified finishers. Another 14 riders finsihed outside the time limit.

Centenary edition, the first Paris-Roubaix was held in 1896.

With about 90 km to go Museeuw, Bortolami and Tafi (all Mapei-GB riders) escaped. With 15 km to go, Mapei company boss phoned Mapei team director Patrick Lefevre, instructing him to arrange a Johan Museeuw win. Museeuw flatted, but Bortolami and Tafi waited and Mapei has its podium finish in the order Squinzi desired. If Franco Ballerini had not suffered several ill-timed punctures, it would have been Mapei one through four.
