The race:

The 1951 Paris-Robaix was 247 km long and raced at an average speed of 40.355 km/hr

There were 202 starters and 96 classified finishers. Time splits after 27th place are unavailable

Rain. In the later kilometers a group of ten riders that included Louison Bobet, Rik van Steenbergen and Antonio Bevilacqua was being chased by another group of ten.

Bevilacqua, individual pursuit world champion, knew he would be crushed in a sprint with van Steenbergen.

He escaped, and turning a 52 x 15 gear, made it to the Roubaix velodrome with a minute and a half gap on his chasers.

Bobet had been delayed by a puncture, but highlighting his terrific form that day, out-sprinted van Steenbergen for second place.
