Paris-Roubaix: Dutchman Dylan Van Baarle wins the “Queen of the Classics”

Dutchman Dylan Van Baarle won in Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. The Ineos runner won the best victory of his career.

Van Baarle gave the Ineos team, the richest of the peloton, the first success in its history in the “Queen of the classics” which was run at a record pace in the sun and in the dust.

Second in the world championship last year, second in the Tour of Flanders at the beginning of the month, Dylan van Baarle offered himself the honors at 29 by winning a Monument.

Van Baarle beat a small group ruled by Belgian champion Wout van Aert by almost two minutes after 257 kilometers of a race led at a brisk pace.

In addition to van Aert (2nd), the Dutchman also dominated another favorite, the Swiss Stefan Küng (3rd). And contrary to forecasts, it was therefore not Mathieu van der Poel (9th) who signed the seventh Dutch victory in history but van Baarle.
