Paris-Brussels (HC)
Paris-Bruxelles

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

Paris-Brussels (Paris-Bruxelles in French) started out as a spring race. The early editions were run in April and, in the fashion of the era, were staggeringly long. After the 1967-1972 hiatus the race was moved to the end of the season.

Robbie McEwen holds the Paris-Brussels win record with 5 victories.
