Who Are the Previous Paris-Roubaix Winners?

The 2021 Paris-Roubaix saw Sonny Colbrelli claim a victory, with the Italian winning the race after an exciting three-man sprint which also involved Florian Vermeersch and Mathieu van der Poel. We might expect a similarly close encounter this time around, with the 2020 race having been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, Philippe Gilbert kept up the tradition of Belgian winners when landing the spoils and that followed the 2018 success of Peter Sagan, while there have been lots of different winners over the years. In 2017, Greg Van Avermaet was the winner of the Paris-Roubaix, while Niki Terpstra, John Degenkolb and Mathew Hayman other victors.

Sonny Colbrelli Among Favourites to Defend Crown

Colbrelli was the 2021 winner of the Paris-Roubaix and the 31-year-old certainly has the right credentials to go close again. He’s currently trading as third betting favourite and he has also finished fourth in the Gent–Wevelgem this season, while there have been two other top-ten finishes.

However, Mathieu Van Der Poel will have developed lots of key findings from his close third place in the 2020 renewal, with the Belgian racking up a number of wins in a short space of time and that includes two National Road Race Championships triumphs along with the 2020 Tour of Flanders and 2021 Strade Bianche.

How to Bet on the 2021 Paris-Roubaix

This is a one-day cycling race and, like every other competition, there are a number of potential winners. Therefore, there are a number of different ways to play this market and there will be the opportunity to place each-way bets, with some cyclists likely to finish in the frame at big prices.

Wout Van Aert is the other betting favourite to win the Paris-Roubaix, although you can find much bigger prices about other talented racers including Florian Vermeersch who finished second in the race last year and he’s currently trading at 40/1.
