April 10 | In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe reflect on Paris-Roubaix.

The race was won by the world champion Peter Sagan but was overshadowed by the death of 23-year-old Belgian rider Michael Goolaerts, who suffered a heart attack and later died in hospital.

We discuss Sagan's victory, which he engineered with an attack more than 50 kilometres from the finish, working with Swiss champion Silvan Dillier, who had been in the early break, and outsprinting him at the finish.

And we review the cobbled classic seasons and weigh up who's done well and who disappointed.
