John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin) would pick up his 2nd monument victory of the year as he out sprinted 6 other riders on the Roubaix velodrome to win the 113th Paris-Roubaix. Zdnek Stybar (Eitxx-Quickstep) would be the runner-up and Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing) completed the podium. It was a true race of attrition as no team could really say they dominated proceedings today. It was more a process of elimination due to the rigors of the cobblestone sectors that created the main selections of the race. It was only in the final 50km that Etixx-Quickstep looked to have some sort of control of the race as.
