Bora-hansgrohe's Peter Sagan has won Paris-Roubaix after a strong move with 50 kilometres to go as the rider felt and showed to be very strong.

Luck was not on Sagan's side in past editions of the race, in which his best result was to finish sixth in 2014, but today was a whole new day for him. "It’s amazing to win Paris-Roubaix! I’m so tired after this race but I have to say, this year I wasn’t involved in any crashes, I wasn’t feeling tired at the start and just tried to save energy," said the World Champion at the end of the race.

"After I went in the attack I just kept going until the finish. I feel so much better than I have done in all the years I’ve ridden Paris-Roubaix – I was so much more tired then than I am today.

Bora-hansgrohe did a good job on the day by setting a pace to keep the group together for as long as possible and by giving Sagan the opportunity to attack with 50 kilometres to go. "Thank you to all my teammates, because they did such a great job – Daniel Oss, Marcus Burghardt and Maciej Bodnar, my brother Juraj and to Andreas Schillinger and Rüdi Selliger at the start, who kept the group all together," commented the rider.

"In the end, I made the winning move with around 50km to go and I’m very happy to have come in first. It’s an amazing feeling. I always try to do my best and to get the best results."
