With 25 kilometers left in the race there were ten riders away. The winner would come from this group.

With ten kilometers to go Rik van Looy attacked out of this leading group of ten to win his third Paris-Roubaix.

He joined Octave Lapize and Gaston Rebry in being the only riders at that point to have won the race three times.
