This is the spring Classic that we wait all year for. It is unlike any other. The cobbles of northern France are just different and even more unforgiving than the cobblestones in Belgium.

Nettie, Matt and Mitch have the scoop on the route, the critical cobbled sectors, and the riders to watch. An entire action-packed weekend of Paris-Roubaix racing awaits with the women on Saturday and the men on Sunday.

Check out our written preview for the women here and the men here.
