The 1996 Paris–Roubaix was the 94th running of the Paris–Roubaix single-day cycling race, often known as the Hell of the North. It was held on 14 April 1996 over a distance of 263.5 kilometres (163.7 miles). These are the results for the 1996 edition of the Paris–Roubaix cycling classic, in which Johan Museeuw won his first Paris-Roubaix. Mapei-GB dominated the race and three riders of this team arrived together to the velodrome in Roubaix.

Patrick Lefevere, Mapei-GB directeur sportif, got the order by phone that Johan Museeuw won from the Italian office of Mapei’s managing director, Giorgio Squinzi.

This race had the fastest average speed (43.31 km/h) since Paris–Roubaix moved to the more difficult easterly route in 1968.
