Paris-Roubaix 2017: Weather Report


The weather is always an influential force in any cycling race but whether it rains or not can truly make a world of difference in one of the most emblematic races of the year: Paris-Roubaix.

The 'Hell of the North' is usually either a wet or a dusty event. Neither is particularly comfortable for the riders involved, although wet circumstances significantly increases the risk of crashes.

The 2017 edition of Paris-Roubaix will very likely be dry. No crashes caused by rain but instead rather perfect weather for a leisurely bike ride. Not exactly the kind of ride the professionals will face on Sunday, but dry nonetheless.

The temperature starts off mild, around 12 degrees at 10 in the morning, and is expected to rise to around 21 degrees in the afternoon. Fans gathering at the roadside should therefore face pleasant circumstances and those with more sensitive skins may even choose to apply some sunscreen. Especially the second half of the afternoon is expected to be mostly sunny.
