1925 Paris - Roubaix

26th edition: Sunday, April 12, 1925

Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1924 edition | 1926 edition

260 km. 126 starters and 78 classified finishers. I'm sorry, I have no time splits. 29 riders were awarded 7th place.

There was a powerful Italian delegation entered, including immortals Costante Girardengo and Alfredo Binda. Binda tried to escape but the Pélissier brothers were having none of that. The pack remained together so that 37 riders contested the finish on the Avenue des Villas in Roubaix. Three-time winner of Paris-Brussels, Félix Sellier, went by Jules van Hevel at almost the last moment to beat perhaps the best Paris-Roubaix field to date
