Enjoy over four hours of video coverage from the 2017 Paris-Roubaix with racing over the cobbles and an exciting finale on the Roubaix Velodrome which determined the winner after a long and epic day.
Boonen’s Final Paris-Roubaix
April 9th 2017 will primarily be remembered for being the day on which Tom Boonen bided farewell to the sport. One of cycling’s biggest champions and personalities, the 36-year-old made the race on Sunday, attacking on several occasions, stretching out the peloton and giving his every ounce of energy to accomplish his goal of retiring with a fifth Paris-Roubaix in the bag.
Even though that much-desired win eluded him and he finished his last participation at the “Queen of the Classics” in 13th place, 12 seconds down on the first group, Tom was all smiles at the finish, where he was given a hero’s welcome by his supporters.
