Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) won Paris-Roubaix 2018: the triple world champion attacked from a group of favorites with 54 km to go, caught the two remnants of the early break (Silvan Dillier of AG2R la Mondiale and Jelle Wallays of Lotto Soudal). Wallays quickly dropped, but Dillier was still going strong, he started sharing the work with Sagan and they were never seen again.
In the final kilometers, Sagan even made his own repairs while riding: he took an alien key from his team car and made some adjustments on his apparently loosened stem. The duo came to the Roubaix velodrome together, and Sagan won the sprint. The Slovakian became the fifth cyclist to win the “queen of the classics” wearing the world champion’s rainbow jersey Notes 1. With an average speed of 43.55 km/h, his victory was also the sixth fastest Paris-Roubaix edition to date.
