Just one word.


You can forget your Grand Tours, your mountains, your World Championships, your flat out sprints and so on. Those are for ordinary professional cyclists.

Tomorrow is different. Tomorrow is for the true hard men of the sport. Tomorrow is for the real champions because tomorrow is Paris Roubaix.

I could wax long and lyrical about this race, but its been done far better than I can manage, so all I can add is to turn on the telly, open a Duvel or 3, hope for rain and watch.

At 5 o'clock the season will be over and a new king will be crowned.
