Philippe Gilbert

Philippe Gilbert wins another monument.

The race: Here is the organizer's race summary:

Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-Quick Step) delivered a masterclass on the way to Roubaix to claim his fifth success in a Monument, after his victories in Lombardia (2009, 2010), Liège (2011) and Flanders (2017). The Belgian star is the first rider to dominate four different Monuments since Sean Kelly in the 1980s. The race was hard-fought from km 0 until the finish in the velodrome, where Philippe Gilbert outsprinted Nils Politt (Katusha Alpecin). Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-Quick Step) came third, ahead of Sep Vanmarcke (EF Education First) and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), who also featured in the long-rang attack that eventually led to Gilbert’s triumph.

Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) fell ill overnight and isn’t part of the 174-man peloton that takes the start in Compiègne under fresh conditions. Riders quickly warm up with many attacks ahead of the first cobblestone sectors. Experts like Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Silvan Dillier (AG2R La Mondiale) and Alexis Gougeard (AG2R La Mondiale) featured in early moves but nobody managed to open proper gaps until a very strong move got away just ahead of the first cobbles, between Troisvilles and Inchy (km 96.5), with a handful of favorites at the front.

Maciej Bodnar (Bora-Hansgrohe), Alexis Gougeard (AG2R La Mondiale), Kamil Gradek and Michael Schär (CCC Team), Edward Theuns (Trek-Segafredo), Matti Breschel (EF Education First), Nils Politt and Marco Haller (Katusha Alpecin), Tim Declercq and Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Damien Gaudin and Adrien Petit (Total Direct Energie), Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott), Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ), Frederik Frison (Lotto Soudal), Bert Van Leberberghe (Cofidis), Davide Ballerini (Astana), Jorge Arcas (Movistar), Frederik Backaert (Wanty-Gobert), Reinardt Janse van Rensburg (Dimension Data), Cees Bol (Sunweb), Kris Boeckmans (Vital Concept-B&B Hotels) and Michaël Van Stayen (Roompot-Charles) open a 50” gap after two cobble sectors.

Matteo Trentin, Kris Boeckmans and Michaël Van Stayen are dropped due to punctures. Bahrain-Merida’s hard pace brings the peloton as they enter sector 23 (km 135). Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) also suffers different mechanicals and loses his chances to fight for the win while the battle is ongoing. Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Oliver Naesen (AG2R La Mondiale) are momentarily dropped in a second group with 115km to go. A 70-man peloton gets back together just ahead of the Trouée d’Arenberg.

Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) leads the pack as they enter the infamous cobble sector (km 162.5). Stijn Vandenbergh (AG2R La Mondiale) accelerates and opens a small gap while Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) suffers a mechanical. Vandenbergh is 10” ahead of the bunch after the sector, Van Aert trails by 30”. After returning to the pack a first time, the Belgian star changes his bike and then suffers a crash with 85km to go. He gets back again 72km away from the finish, after an impressive solo pursuit.

Wesley Kreder (Wanty-Gobert) accelerates in the sector nº16 and is joined at the front by Nils Politt (Katusha Alpecin), Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-Quick Step) and Rüdiger Selig (Bora-Hansgrohe). Wout Van Aert reacts, Peter Sagan follows and a very strong group emerges in the sector of Mons-en-Pévèle (km 209): Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Sep Vanmarcke (EF Education First), Nils Politt (Katusha Alpecin), Philippe Gilbert and Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma). They quickly open a 1’ gap to a 30-man pack.

Philippe Gilbert accelerates with 23km to go. Peter Sagan and Nils Politt immediately follow. Sep Vanmarcke and Yves Lampaert manage to bridge the gap inside the Camphin-en-Pévèle sector (km 240). Gilbert accelerates again in the Carrefour de l’Arbre but the key move happens with 13km to go, on the cobbles of Gruson: Politt attacks and Gilbert is the only one able to follow. They enjoy a 45” lead over their chasers after the sector 2, with only 6km to go.

Sep Vanmarcke (EF Education First) suffers a mechanical in the finale, Peter Sagan gives up and Yves Lampaert moves closer to the leading duo. Gilbert and Politt still enjoy a 15” lead as they enter the velodrome of Roubaix, where the experienced Belgian rider out-sprinted the young German hope. At 36 years old, he is the second oldest rider of Paris-Roubaix in the 21st century, after Mathew Hayman. And he can still dream of conquering the five different Monuments of cycling, to go along with his World champion title (2012)..

Our live race updates:

174 riders were given the official start at 11:09 AM. Fernando Gaviria (UAE-Team Emirates) fell ill overnight and did not start.

Paris-Roubaix

The race is on. Riders enter the first cobbled sector.

About 100 kilometers into the race and about to hit the second cobbled sector (Briastre), 23 riders have a 50-second lead on the pack.

At 136 kilometers into the race the big break was caught as the riders enter sector 23 (Verchain-Maugré). Peter Sagan had been delayed by a crash, but has was quickly back up on his bike and chasing.

160 kilometers into the race the unified peloton enters the famed Arenberg cobbled sector with Greg Van Avermaet and John Degenkolb at the front.

Arenberg cobbles

Into the Arenberg sector.

With about 75 kilometers and 16 cobbled sectors to go, about 70 riders are 1min 45sec ahead of the first large group of chasers. Four riders are a few seconds ahead of the 70.

64 km to go: OK, now it's getting serious. Philippe Gilbert, Rudiger Selig, Wesley Kreder and Nils Politt have attacked and have a 20-second gap on the peloton.

55 km to go, after the Orchies sector: Wesley Kreder was dropped from the break, so now it's the three: Gilbert, Selig & Politt 23sec ahead of the pack. Riders, including Peter Sagan, are trying to get up to the trio. And now Selig, a teammate of Sagan, is dropped from the break.

50 km to go: Philippe Gilbert is alone, off the front. 15 seconds back, Sagan, Van Aert, Vanmarcke, Lampaert and Politt are chasing. The pack is a few seconds behind the Sagan group.

46 km to go, as the riders get to the Mons-en-Pévèle sector: The Sagan group has caught Gilbert. There are now 8 riders 30 seconds ahead of the peloton: Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Sep Vanmarcke (EF Education First), Nils Politt (Katusha Alpecin), Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Marc Sarreau (Groupama-FDJ), Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Christophe Laporte (Cofidis). Quickly Sareau and Laporte are dropped.

24 kilometers to go: 6 riders off the front: Lampaert, Politt, Gilbert, Vanmarcke, Van Aert and Sagan. They hold a 50-second lead over the peloton and are about to enter the Cysoing sector (#7). After crashing Tiesj Benoot (Lotto-Soudal) was forced to abandon and is being taken to a hospital to make sure he's OK.

20 km to go: Now it's Gilbert, Sagan and Politt in the lead. And now Yves Lampaert and Sep Vanmarcke have joined them. They have a 75sec lead on the pack.

15 km to go: Phillipe Gilbert attacks and only Peter Sagan can go with him.

13 km to go. With the Carrefour de l'Arbre sector in the rear view mirror Politt, Vanmarcke and Lampaert have rejoined Gilbert and Sagan.

Bam! Nils Politt attacks and Sagan can't stay with him. Gilbert can.

10 km to go: Philippe Gilbert and Nils Politt are working together and now have 20sec on the chasing trio. The pack is more than a minute back. This might be the race.

Now Politt and Gilbert have a half-minute!

6 km to go: Gilbert and Politt are on the penultimate cobbled sector with a 40sec gap. Gilbert is trying to get rid of Politt but he can't.

3 km to go. Gilbert and Politt are 35sec ahead of a lone chasing Yves Lampaert.

The finish:The pair came into the velodrome, where Philippe Gilbert has won Paris-Roubaix.

In the organizer's words: 175 riders from 25 teams saluted the crowds in Compiègne on Saturday, on the eve of the 117th edition of the Hell of the North. Former winners such as Peter Sagan (2018), Greg Van Avermaet (2018) and John Degenkolb (2015) eye a new victory in the iconic velodrome of Roubaix, but outsiders like Alexander Kristoff feel ready for the challenge.

Organizer's race announcement:

February 12th 2019 - 14:15: On 14 April, the riders of the 117th edition of Paris–Roubaix will roll out of Compiègne and tackle a course of the same length (257km) and with the same amount of cobblestones (54.5km) as last year's. A few adjustments have been made to the early sectors, starting in Troisvilles (96.5km), while the Trouée d'Arenberg has been shortened by 100 metres… without touching a single cobblestone!

Cobble-gobblers are familiar with the whirring sound of their wheels on the cobblestones of Roubaix, which start to rattle their bicycles about 100km into the race, right after the village of Troisvilles. Eagle-eyed observers will realise that the first cobbled sector is a bit shorter this time round (0.9km versus 2.2km in 2018). Although the peloton will be focused on this sequence, and it may have even started the war of attrition by this time, the second sector (no. 28, from Briastre to Viesly) will provide an opportunity for the riders to honour the memory of Michael Goolaert as they ride past the stele marking the location where he suffered a cardiac arrest last year. The effort will then enter the Cambrésis region, heading due east so that the peloton tackles the Quiévy (no. 26), Saint-Python (no. 25) and Vertain (no. 24) in the opposite direction compared to 2018. The Vertain sector is back in the race for the first time since 2017.

From the moment the riders enter the Valenciennes area (sector no. 23), the course of the Queen of Classics remains unchanged all the way to Roubaix Velodrome. However, the official map is not exactly the same. More accurate measurements taken during reconnoitring shortened the Trouée d'Arenberg (no. 19) from 2,400 to 2,300 metres… without touching a single cobblestone! The first five-star sector, where the fight between the pretenders to the crown enters a decisive phase, remains as tough as ever. Anyone who is not in the lead group at the end of the sector can wave goodbye to victory in Roubaix. Later on, the Mons-en-Pévèle (no. 11) and Carrefour de l'Arbre (no. 4) five-star sectors will set the scene for further attacks and dramatic twists.
