Hi riders, as great as the Tour de France is, my favorite pro race of the year is Paris-Roubaix. This sketchy suffer-fest is 160 miles long with 29 treacherous cobble sections – it’s either slick from rain or from dust so it’s never tame. To win this race takes a special toughness. Legends are made here for sure.

My wife and I were in France this month and I was lucky enough to take a train up to Roubaix where we were able to hang out in the infamous velodrome. This place was so cool, just so much history and glory over the many years. Check out some pics here:
