Goolaerts in serious condition after cardiac arrest at Paris-Roubaix

Peter Sagan and his teammates previewed part of the Paris Roubaix route Thursday

Sagan, the three-time world champion from Slovakia, and Dillier rode together at the front for the last 25 kilometers (15.5 miles).

Sagan thus became the first rider since Bernard Hinault in 1981 to win the Queen of the Classics in the rainbow jersey of a world champion.

"It's fantastic to win Paris-Roubaix".

"He did of cardiac arrest, all medical assistance was to no avail".

"It's very good for my career, when I was younger I dreamed of winning this race".

The Belgian rider - in only his second year as a professional rider with Verandas Willems-Crelan - crashed on the second set of cobbles and a medical statement later confirmed that he was in a life-threatening condition. "No further news at the moment".

They later appealed for people to refrain from speculation as they wait for an update on his situation. Trentin's Mitchelton-Scott team said the 28-year-old Italian rider suffered a fracture in the thoracic region and will remain hospitalized for a few days. The race was also marred by several crashes that ended the hopes of outsiders Sebastian Langeveld and Matteo Trentin close to the Trouee d'Arenberg sector.

The Slovakian accelerated 55 km from the finish line at the Roubaix Velodrome to catch the day's breakaway riders and get rid of the strongest of them, Swiss Silvan Dillier, in a sprint finish.

Terpstra, whose Quick-Step team had been expected to dominate the race, said nothing could have been done to stop the Slovak.

Paris-Roubaix, which is known as the "Hell of the North", is regarded as one of the toughest races in cycling, featuring 29 cobbled sections. "I've done my best", Sagan said.
