The Race:

The 1985 Paris-Roubaix was 268 km long and raced at an average speed of 36.109 km/hr

There were 172 starters and 35 classified finishers

It was a day of wind, snow and rain. It was an epic Paris-Roubaix.

At the Carrefour de l'Arbre sector of cobbles, with about 15 kilometers remaining, Marc Madiot launched himself from a small group of survivors.

His attack was irresistible. To make the victory sweeter, his teammate Bruno Wojtinek, who had been protecting him, was able to extricate himself as well, giving Cyrille Guimard's Renault-Elf team a 1-2 at Paris-Roubaix.
