Originally scheduled to take place on 11 April 2021, the race was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in France.[6] The planned race in 2020 was also cancelled due to the pandemic.[7] For the first time, Paris–Roubaix Femmes was held, taking place the day before the men's race.

Italy's Sonny Colbrelli won the race in a three-man sprint ahead of Florian Vermeersch and Mathieu van der Poel.[4] It was the first time an Italian cyclist had won the race since Andrea Tafi won the 1999 edition.[8] The Paris–Roubaix weekend was wet and rainy, for the first time for nearly 20 years.[9]
