Thoughts on Paris-Roubaix:
Way to go, Niki! Glad none of the big favourites won. Happy to see Boonen work so hard and try to go long and early, too bad none of the other guys seemed to put their heart into it, but who’s to blame them, with their leaders behind and BMC/Belkin not present. Garmin got a top 10 (Langeveld!) and hats off to Sir Bradley, who was much ridiculed before the race and finished in the same spot LeMond finished in 1992 - 9th. Nice to see a Grand Tour winner try his hands at something else, even though the media storm beforehand was quite annoying. Bring on the Ardennes!
