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.

I still remember fondly being in a two-man break with him at our annual road race when he was just a wee boy and I was…… No prizes for guessing who won.
