No doubt along with me, many of you would have stayed up late last night watching the always compelling Paris-Roubaix race.
It was interesting to see the contrast in what the first and second place getters said after the race on the Cycling News web site:
Tom was going strong and there was nothing to do. Clearly, if I had been able to stick on his wheel it would have changed the whole story. It would have been a good duel.
Filippo Pozzato, second place getter.
Once more it’s been proven that you can’t win a race by sticking on someone’s wheel
Tom Boonen, winner.
Pozzato was right, Boonen was too strong, but fortune favours the brave.
