Rapha films presents: the Queens of the Classic

Rapha takes you behind the scenes with Zoe Bäckstedt and Alison Jackson at the 2023 Paris-Roubaix

May 8, 2023

From the pavé to its iconic trophy, Paris-Roubaix is a classics race like no other. Two of our riders, Zoe Bäckstedt and Alison Jackson, experienced this first hand at the 2023 edition of the race.

In Rapha’s film, “The Queens of Classic,” we follow 18-year-old Zoe as she prepares to make her debut at the race her father won just a few months before she was born. The film charts the teenager’s ascension though cycling, right up to taking on the cobbles of northern France. And Zoe’s teammate Alison Jackson, the Queen of TikTok, earned herself a new title: the Queen of Roubaix.

Follow the pair through their Paris-Roubaix journeys and go behind the scenes at a memorable edition of the classic.

Join Alison and Zoe on May 8 for the live premiere on our YouTube channel at 8pm BST where they will be answering your questions in the chat.
