The Race:

The 2007 Paris-Roubaix 259.5 km long and raced at an average speed of 42.181 km/hr. 52.7 kilometers of the race were cobbled.

There were 187 starters and 96 classified finishers.

The day was warm (23C at the start and warmed up during the day), dry and dusty.

With about 30 kilometers to go, the winning break coalesced and with 23 kilometers still to go, Stuart O'Grady bolted from this group.

The four chasers, Juan Antonio Flecha, Steffen Wesemann, Bjorn Leukemans and Roberto Petito, lost ground to O'Grady with every pedal stroke.

O'Grady won the race, finishing alone, nearly a minute ahead of the chasing quartet. He became the first antipodean to win Paris-Roubaix.
