"It is with unimaginable sadness that we have to communicate the passing of our rider and friend Michael Goolaerts", the statement read.

Also in recent years, Iranian Paralympian Bahman Golbarnezhad also died of cardiac arrest on the way to hospital after crashing during the S4 race at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

According to the post-race Decision of the Commissaire's Jury sheet, both riders have been fined for breaking UCI race regulation article 12.1.040/23, which states that no unauthorised refreshment should be taken in the final 20km of a race.

Tour of Flanders victor Niki Terpstra, of the Netherlands, arrived home third at the 257km race, even 54.5km of them become the most famed cobbled businesses in northern France.

"We thank you in advance for respecting the privacy of his relatives".

"I'm exhausted following this race", Sagan, the first rider as Frenchman Bernard Hinault to triumph here as a world champion, said. They did a great job, keeping everyone altogether.

The Czech champion, however, waited for the peloton as he failed to build a decent advantage.

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) finally silenced the few doubters he had remaining by taking an emphatic victory at the 2018 Paris-Roubaix. In 2017, almost half of the riders did not make it to the finish in the Roubaix Velodrome.

The Slovakian attacked 54 kilometers from the finish and bridged alone to the day's breakaway and drove the group to the finish.
