Britain’s Lizzie Deignan took a sensational breakaway win within the first version of the ladies’s Paris-Roubaix.
The Trek-Segafredo rider pulled away from the peloton with greater than 80km to go, earlier than rain affected the course.
The legendary race on the brutal ‘pave’ cobblestones returned this weekend after the coronavirus pandemic precipitated it to be postponed in 2020.
Deignan powered away round midway by the race earlier than the riders reached the unforgiving cobbled sections that permeate the race often known as the ‘hell of the north’.
Extra to observe.
