Paris-Roubaix podium history | 1949 edition | 1947 edition

246 km. Number of starters and finishers unknown. Time splits after eighth place unavailable

Rik van Steenbergen bridged to a small lead group just as the race reached Roubaix. Emile Idée gambled on an attack, knowing van Steenbergen would outsprint them all. But, when Idée looked back after his attack, he saw that only van Steenbergen had been able to follow him. The final outcome was no surprise, on the Roubaix velodrome van Steenbergen easily sped past Idée.
