Eurosport This Week

Week 15 Highlights

For the second year running, Eurosport will broadcast the entire Paris-Roubaix race from start to finish with six hours of LIVE coverage.

Paris-Roubaix is a one-day race known as “The Queen of the Classics” for its prestige and “Hell of the North” for its brutal yet iconic cobblestone sections and tricky race conditions.

The race itself is considered one of the toughest challenges in the world of sport, with riders having to tackle not only the cobblestones of northern France but the elements as well, with weather usually playing a massive part in the result.

Eurosport expert Rob Hatch will be joined by two-time winner of the Paris-Roubaix Sean Kelly in the commentary booth.

Last year’s event in London saw Great Britain top the table with nine medals including five gold. Later that year they produced a strong showing at the Rio Olympic Games and will once again be strong competitors in 2017, with many of the top riders from all nations expected to compete.

 

Eurosport expert Rob Hatch will be joined by Tony Gibb in the commentary booth.

Eurosport will show highlights of badminton’s Malaysian Open featuring British stars Chris and Gabby Adcock. 

Married mixed-doubles pairing Chris and Gabby Adcock were aiming to become the first English pair to reach the YONEX All England final since 2006 recently but just missed out after defeat in the semi-finals.

However, that tournament will have instilled real confidence in the Adcocks, knocking out the Olympic champions in the quarter-finals, and they will go into the Malaysian Open with a good chance of claiming the title.
