The race:

The 1958 Paris-Roubaix was 269 km long and raced at an average speed of 33.30 km/hr.

We don't know how many riders started the race, there were 76 classified finishers.

Three kilometers from the end Jacques Anquetil's escape was ended by a flat tire.

At the entrance to the Roubaix velodrome Seamus Elliot and Roger Verplaetse had a 20-meter lead, but they was quickly caught by the 22 man chasing group.

On the track, big Léon Van Daele took off with 300 meters to go and none of the gifted group could come around him.
