Paris - Roubaix

Queen of the Classics, Hell of the North, one bone-shaking MFr - coming Sunday.

With Degenkolb unable to defend his title, who are the favorites? Here's one answer:

Paris - Roubaix Betting Odds - Paddy Power

Reports of extreme muddiness in some cobble sections make me wonder what tire selections will be made and whether a dark horse may emerge.

Sagan has got to be a favorite to win.

If you'll be betting you will want to consider that the route could get changed due to mud:
Paris-Roubaix may reroute due to mud - VeloNews.com

Either way, it should be a heckuva (messy and muddy) race!
NBCsn will have it, a three hour show IIRC.

Sagan has looked really strong the last two weeks, but I'm looking for Stybar to step up.

No betting, but I do love this race; have actually been hoping for some mud and slop, after a few dry years, in a row.

Rerouting P-R, due to mud, sounds a bit like canceling a swim meet, due to rain, No?

Anybody know any free or cheap streaming options? I don't mind watching in French and can be flexible with my IP nationality if necessary.

Don't know if they will do it again this weekend for P-R, but Steephill provided a direct, quality link to the Eurosport (English) coverage for Flanders. If they do this again, and you can put up with Kirby (Sean Kelly is great), the quality was pretty good.

I'm getting conflicting info on whether this will be aired Sunday or Monday on NBCSN. Anyone know for sure?
Thanks.

On my cable provider's listings, Sunday 1:00 - 4:00 pm MDT. But who knows what will happen. Maybe it will be pre-empted by a poker game or hot rod auction.

Thanks for the info. I saw that it will air on Sunday at 3:00 pm EDT and wasn't sure because I had previously read it would air Monday.

Thanks.
On the West Coast, Time Warner Cable has it listed as Sunday 12-3 pm, so you're 3 pm Eastern start time sounds right. When I don't trust the TW listings I will sometimes just DVR a few hours before and a few hours after the listing so as not to miss.

Yea, not a bad idea given the seeming conflicting times I've read.
Thanks much.

Right? Last week when I was searching the listings for Tour of Flanders I just couldn't believe the level of crap that was being aired on beIN the actual day of the race, apparently forcing them to put off airing it until some time Monday, but I guess "to be announced" brings in more viewers than cycling.

I'm finding myself jealous of the way the third tier sports channels are catering to curling fans.

Excellent race today, great weather and very, very fun finish. It will be shown on NBCSN this afternoon (well the last 40k or so), classic!!!

Too bad it is only the last 40K....and diluted 3:1 to fill 3 hours. Typical US broadcasters I suppose.

Lots of stuff happened leading up to that point that determined things. Also some amazing bike handling on display.

Truly amazing bike handling, even if he didn't win, with skills like that he'll win more.

This race just does not disappoint. It's always fun to watch.

That was an amazing piece of bike handling by Sagan to get over Cancellara.

NBC Sports Extra has the full event available for streaming if you're a cable subscriber.

Great race.
