The 2016 Paris–Roubaix was the 114th edition. The race took place over 257.5 kilometres (160.0 mi). The race was hard from the very beginning, with major attacks being made over 100 kilometres (62 mi) from the finish. Cancellara and Sagan were held up by crashes and a five-rider group formed in the final 20 kilometres (12 mi) and, despite many more attacks in the closing part of the race, came to the velodrome in Roubaix together. The sprint was won by Mathew Hayman (Orica–GreenEDGE) ahead of Tom Boonen, with Ian Stannard (Team Sky) in third.
