Paris-Roubaix changes race time to let trains pass


Organizers of the Paris-Roubaix cycling classic said on Tuesday they have changed the times of this weekend’s race to avoid last year’s fiasco where riders passed through a railway crossing after the barriers had come down. Sunday’s ‘Hell of the North’ is the third of the year’s ‘Monument’ one-day classics and one of the most prestigious races on cycling’s calendar. The start time at Compiègne in northern France has now been set for 10:40 local time (08:40GMT) instead of 10:20 (08:10) as initially planned.
