Paris-Roubaix 2020 odds
Who wins Paris-Roubaix 2020?
The Paris Roubaix, also known as the “Hell of The North” is one of the oldest and one of the most significant cycling events in the history of the sport. The infamous cobbles pound riders for hours upon hours, while they travel over 250km, which makes this race very interesting to watch as there are often unforeseen circumstances popping up all over.
The 2020 Paris Roubaix is scheduled to take place on April 12, 2020. It will most definitely be one of the more interesting races of the spring and even one of the more interesting races of the year.
While the team list for the 2020 Paris Roubaix has not been announced yet, some teams that participated last year included AG2R La Mondiale, Astana, Bahrain-Merida, Bora-Hansgrohe, CCC Team, Deceuninck-Quick-Step, Groupama-FDJ, Team Katusha-Alpecin, Lotto-Soudal, Michelton-Scott, Movistar Team, Team Dimension Data, Team Jumbo-Visma, Team Sunweb, Trek-Segafredo, UAE Team Emirates, and of course Team Sky. Beligians swept the race, with 3 of the top 5 riders being Belgian. Team Deceuninck-Quick-Step was represented well, with a total of 4 out of the top 10 riders being members of their team.
This year there is a lot of anticipation for the race, and it should be very interesting to see who ends up finishing near the top, and who does not. Peter Sagan is always fun to watch, and you never know when he is just going to pull a card out of his back pocket and end up right in the front. The Tour of Flanders is another very well-known and exciting cycling race, and that takes place right before the Paris Roubaix as well. Keeping your eye on that race, and how the riders do can be a key way to see who is performing well currently, as well as who might not do so well due to injuries, crashes, etc.
It would be nice to be able to say that there are a handful of riders who are favored to potentially win the Paris Roubaix in 2020, however that really can be difficult to predict. Not only are we just getting into winter, which is the off-season of cycling racing, but the race itself is rather unpredictable. Rain can make a mess of the course very quickly, though a lack of rain does not make the course any less challenging. The thrill of riding on the cobbles comes from the grit and determination needed to stay competitive, and there is always a chance that they can throw a curveball into a rider’s plans and change the outcome of the race rather quickly. As we get closer to the start date of the 2020 Paris Roubaix there should be more information our about the teams that will be participating, the riders that will be competing, and the course they will be racing on.
