105th edition: Sunday, April 15, 2007

2006 edition | 2008 edition | Podium history of Paris-Roubaix | Photos

259.5 km, 52.7 of which are cobbled | 187 starters, 96 classified finishers

The Race: 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, Flecha, Wesemann, Leukemans and Petito, lost ground to O'Grady with every pedal stroke. O'Grady became the first antipodean to win Paris-Roubaix.
