The long-anticipated, inaugural Paris Roubaix Femmes is on! Paris-Roubaix is one of the oldest running races on the men's calendar, making its debut in 1896 and hosting 117 editions since. Paris-Roubaix has never held a women's edition before, but after 125 years the wait is finally over!! As with so many events, this race was initially scheduled to debut in 2020, but that race was cancelled due to Covid and is now rescheduled this year with an October start.
Rudy Project sponsored Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank will be one of the teams competing. "Being part of the inaugural women’s Paris Roubaix is something really special for the whole team," team director Rachel Hedderman said. "Not just the riders but also the staff, everyone involved, feels the magnitude of what we are a part of.”
