TeamsEdit

As Paris-Roubaix is a UCI World Tour event, all 18 UCI World Teams were invited automatically and were obliged to send a squad.[4] In February 2017, the race organisers announced the seven UCI Professional Continental teams that had received wildcard invitations, completing the 25-team peloton.[5]
