Italian rider Elisa Longo Borghini won the second women’s tournament Paris-Roubaix in style, after a break and a solo ride of almost 30km. The Trek Segafredo rider navigated a paved sector of the 124.7km route, chasing a breakaway.

The two-time World and Olympic bronze medalist won the event by over 23 seconds over second-placed Lotte Kopecky, who was the youngest winner of Belgium Tour de Flanders. Borghini’s teammate, Netherlands Lucinda brandfinished third. “It’s an amazing feeling” said Longo Borghini.

“I had been unwell for a month and couldn’t perform the way I wanted to. But the team trusted me and told me I could do it.” Borghini told bbc.com. But not everything went well for the athletes. Italy’s Elisa Balsamo was disqualified for taking an illegal tow from the team car in pursuit after a puncture.

Unfortunately, last year’s runner-up Marianne Vos was ruled out of the race after testing positive for Covid-19. Last year’s race was won by Brit Lizzie Deignan. She didn’t defend her title this year because she’s expecting her second child.
