Velon video brings the best thrills and spills via on-board footage

Bone-jarring cobbles, crosswinds, punctures, crashes… Paris-Roubaix isn’t known as the ‘Hell of the North’ for nothing.

And Sunday’s race was no different, with plenty of action to enjoy in the third of the season’s five Monuments, before Mat Hayman went on to sprint to victory.

From near misses even before the peloton had reached the pave secteurs to the thrills and spills of the cobbles, check out the best of the action above.
