At one point, former three times winner Francesco Moser looked the serious contender, but a crash due to a hole between cobbles and a slow repair of his equipment eliminated Moser from the final.

About 15 kilometres from Roubaix, Marc Madiot escaped from an eight-man group with among others defending race winner Sean Kelly. Madiot held on and entered the velodrome in Roubaix on his own to win.[2] Bruno Wojtinek, leaving the chase group some two kilometres from the line, finished second, cementing a French double. Sean Kelly and Greg LeMond were the next riders home having avoided a crash just as the chasing group was entering the velodrome in Roubaix.

Below, the results for the 1985 edition of the Paris–Roubaix cycling classic.
