Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?
The 36-year-old formal world champion rode into the Roubaix velodrome behind the wheel of Nils Politt. The Deceuninck – Quick-Step pro opened up the sprint in the last 100 metres and proved to be too much for the 25-year-old German. Gilbert got a fourth Monument win and added another stunning victory to Quick-Step’s amazing 2019 run.

“I realised again today what it means to win for the Quick-Step team,” Gilbert said. “700 victories with 100 riders, that is as much as Eddy Merckx and its great to win for this team which has so many qualities. And one goal, which is victory.”

What a special moment
I thought I would have some relaxing time in my own shower but it wasn't the case… However, it is a special moment and an honor when you put a plaque with your name in one of the @roubaix velodrome showers! @Paris_Roubaix @BORAhansgrohe (Photos @veloimages) pic.twitter.com/zXtpacecGf
