What an incredible day at the 114th Paris-Roubaix. Our Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders were right in the thick of the action with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg in the main break of the day and the rest of the team supporting Edvald Boasson Hagen to have him eventually finish in an awesome 5th position. Stiehl Photography captured the action for us..
The 114th Paris-Roubaix saw a surprise victor as Matthew Hayman (Orica-Greenedge) sprinted to the win on the Roubaix Velodrome ahead of Tom Boonen (Etixx-Quickstep) and Ian Stannard (Team Sky). What an incredible day it would prove to be as “The Hell of the North” lived up to be 257km of pure drama. From the start gun the pace was on as the early break tried to form. On numerous occasions a group would get away, but the composition was never to the liking of all the teams and so everything was shut down in the first 70km of the race.
