Paris Roubaix

The greatest classic of them all takes place this weekend, and I'm excited, and I want you to be excited too.  So to warm you up here are a few images from this majestic bicycle race.

Paris Roubaix is a living dinosaur, a throwback to the great eras of cyclings past.  The men may change but the cobbles remain eternal.  In no other bicycle race do the human elements of pain, suffering, determination and will show themselves as clearly or as beautifully. Fat tires, double tape jobs, traditional wheels, velodrome finish, and the spectacle of post race interviews in the shower.  The human element is what makes professional bike racing so interesting, and no other race delivers like Paris Roubaix. I can't wait. 

Coverage starts at 4pm Central on VS.
